I have experience in teaching Business English to students in Japan (prestigious companies like Toshiba, IBM, Clestra, etc) and around the world (Yandex, Baidu, etc.)

There are a number of stream options including: Job Interview preparation, resume and job application rewriting, Medical English, and the General Stream. All streams involve role play exercises for doctors and nurses, business idioms and phrasal verbs (see HEALTH INSURANCE.doc and BUSINESS PRESSURE).

In the last 20 years, software ate the world.

In the next 20 years, AI will eat software.
