Hello, ESPers worldwide!
Are you looking for a great site to teach the content and language of entrepreneurship? The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) offers free online courses for starting a business.
I also recommend checking out the following free online course: “Essential Guide to Starting Your Own Business for Young Entrepreneurs.”
The course is about 40 minutes long (which, by the way, is similar to the length of time required to complete the TESOL proposal reviewer training). The transcript is available on the side of the screen, but it can be printed out as well (and the print out includes the various URLs mentioned in the presentation, which is very useful!). It is really packed with information (but some of that may be outdated?)! You do need to register to access the course, but this is easy to do.
Actually, before seeing the SBA course, my students made class presentations based on material in Bplans.com which “contains the largest single online collection of free sample business plans” and is “a free resource to help entrepreneurs plan better businesses.” Bplans is a great resource for helping students understand the language and construction of business plans!
Good luck with adapting these resources to meet the language training needs of your learners!
I’ll see you next week!
