When teaching Business English, we spend a lot of effort on building up our students’ abilities to express themselves confidently and accurately. However, students working in business have needs which go beyond this. A large part of business communication, both spoken and written, is devoted to persuasion: persuading clients to buy products or services, to accept your price, accept certain terms; persuading colleagues or managers to adopt your decisions, to listen to your suggestions and opinions. In this way, successful persuasion and networking is essential in achieving business objectives. This workshop covers activities we can do in the classroom to develop our students’ powers of persuasion in English, when speaking and when writing.
