GBP Program at SDSU's ALI

My name is Carlo Portman, I am from Switzerland. and I am here joining the BGP program at the ALI. I would like to improve my English with an emphasis on Business English because when I go back to my country, I will start an internship at a swiss bank, and it is very important for me to have good English. At the BGP program, we don't only learn how to read or speak, or listen to English but how to use American Business, so for example we have business through video where we try to watch different videos that are related to business and try to catch some vocabulary. Or, for example, we have business discussion, where we talk about different American companies and their history. Or we also learn how to write letters with business English but then we also have the classical classes like TOEFL or reading, or listening. That's what we are doing in the BGP program. The BGP program really helped me to express but also to understand opinions in English and to talk to people, too, if it is necessary to negotiate. One more thing that I can take with me is the vocabulary that I learned here. I think, in my opinion, for some people to understand business English the problem is to understand all the slangs, the idioms, the expressions that there are in Business English, so I can take now Business vocabulary back home and I will understand these words but I will also be able to use them with business partners.
