Professional English Online is a free resource for teachers. It was created by Cambridge University Press and has both articles dealing with teacher development as well as new activities which can be used in the classroom. There are weekly quotes from the business world, jargon busters explaining the latest business terminology and ideas on how to work with them and full-length photocopiable activities. In this presentation we will look at classroom applications.
