Business intermediate trial lesson: encouraging

This is a sample lesson from our intermediate business course. This book is suitable for the following levels:

400 - 600 40 - 65 3.5 - 5.5

The book covers all main language skills and general business English. More information is available on the intermediate business course page.


In this lesson, you will learn how to encourage someone and give positive feedback when you are not sure. This is very useful in everyday life and business.

Warm Up: 

Do you give feedback in your job? To who? About what? Talk to your teacher about it.


We are going to do the "Practically speaking" at the bottom of the page. First, let's start with some listening. Get ready to make some notes. Your teacher will help you with the instructions.


Now let's practice. Your teacher will make suggestions and come up with ideas. You should respond to them in an encouraging way (even if the idea is no good!).
