Living on a Budget- Free Business English Materials

Hello Readers,

Have you found it difficult to create your own Business English materials for class? Do you need extra Business English materials to supplement your textbook? Do you need something to get you started?

Business English can be a difficult class to teach, especially if you don't have any or much experience in the field of business. That's why having materials you can rely on...

... is absolutely vital in a Business English class.

Getting online Business English materials is easy- and free. Macmillan's Business English Online is one such source that has worked wonders for me:


You can sign up to get a lesson sent to you by mail on a weekly basis, or you can go directly to the website to look through their lesson warehouse. Lessons come with teacher's instructions and student worksheets. The lessons are on a variety of subjects and are created for students of different levels as well.

Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch?
