Students improve listening comprehension through the use of radio programs, discussions, and short texts. Students are expected to present opinions on a variety of business topics. There are regular drills and homework focused on conversational uses of business vocabulary and idioms. (Completion of Level 7 or initial placement in Level 8 required.)

Business Communication for Professionals In this class, designed specifically for professionals, students discuss topics such as global marketing, entrepreneurship, monopolies, corporate structure, brand management, prices and commodities, social skills outside the workplace, and innovation in business. Students gain a greater understanding of US business culture and an ability to intelligently and clearly express views on a wide variety of business topics. (Completion of Level 7 or initial placement in Level 8 required AND at least 5 years work experience. Lower level students may enter this class only with special permission from the Academic Director.)

Reading & Writing for Business In this intensive course, students develop, practice, and refine their business writing skills while focusing on the styles and tones of business vocabulary and business idioms.

TOEFL Preparation Course

Intensive TOEFL® Because students in Level 9 and higher can enroll in NESE’s Intensive TOEFL® course for as little as one month or for as many as six months, they can design their English language program so that it is uniquely suited to their specific needs. In addition, as NESE’s TOEFL® course is divided into three main skill areas – grammar, listening & speaking, and reading & writing – students can concentrate on the particular sections of the TOEFL® Exam that they most wish to improve. For example, a student who needs to improve his score dramatically on all parts of the TOEFL® test, might take NESE’s TOEFL® course from 9:00 am to 3:15 pm each day for six months while another student might take only Reading & Writing for TOEFL® for 1 month. Whatever a student’s goals, NESE’s intensive TOEFL® course will help him reach them as quickly as possible.

NESE's Institutional TOEFL® Exam is offered every month at NESE to students in Level 6 and higher. There is no extra fee for full-time students to take this exam. Part-time students are required to pay a fee each time they take this exam.
