The main objective of our paper is to present an overview of internet resources offering a broad variety of free resources for the teaching and learning of business English. The websites mentioned are some of the most popular business English sites on the web, designed to be of assistance to both students and teachers, that is they provide lesson plans, teacher designed activities and many other resources that complement and extend learning beyond the classroom.
We have compiled a list of more than 30 links to free web pages related to business
English, for which we further offer reviews, thus exploring the variety of these excellent resources that can be found on the Internet for sustaining active learning. We have also organized these resources according to criteria regarding the main topic areas dealt with, in an attempt to structure our analysis of these websites in conformity with their similarities.
We believe that English teachers should keep themselves up-to-date with the helpful resources that can be found on the www, because the web offers invaluable information both for educators and for self-learners. The job of the teacher is that of guiding students towards self-education, self-development and self-assessment, assisting them throughout their endevours.
Our aim as English teachers is not only to help students acquire skills and data present in the curriculum, but also to further develop these skills in the spirit of life-long education. Integrating technology into the classrooms enhances student motivation and teaching effectiveness, ultimately resulting in better education and increase of knowledge.
