Overview

This program includes a variety of articles and texts common in the workplace or business setting. Each of the modules explores four types of business English articles, covering a range of vocabulary, grammar structures, phrases, and idioms. The video lectures are meant to check understanding and guide students through how to decipher the article step by step into a comprehensible whole.

In addition, English to Korean translation articles focus on the ability to transfer the meaning of the original text, while maintaining fluidity and flow.
