This is a seven day Business Economics English course for those students whose first language is not nEnglish. If you are fluent in English then skip this course.

Course Two - Egg Timer Economics

‘Egg timer economics’ is a series of very short lectures that illustrate key areas of the advanced Economics course. (Each lecture is about 3.5 minutes, hence the title 'Egg-timer Economics!) The course introduces key areas of micro and macroeconomics in a very straightforward way. There are also two sections on current affairs to encourage those attending the course to use news items to learn about Economics.

Each lecture (except Current Affairs) is accompanied by data response questions and a quiz.

Course Three - Corbynomics


Jeremy Corbyn leads the Labour Party in the UK. 'Corbynomics' has certainly captured the attention of the young.

What terminology would you expect the audience to use to find your course?

The terminology is common business language – as found in newspapers. Therefore terms such as ‘fiscal policy’ and ‘monetary policy’ are used. Students are encouraged to use the Q/A option to raise points and questions. These questions will very quickly be responded to. Remember too that there is an ‘Economics English’ course included.

What kind of materials are included?

600+ short lectures and some documents that a) test whether the student had understood/remembered the key elements of the lecture and b) questions encouraging to do their own research. In that way the course continues beyond the video.

How long will the course take to complete?

Assuming the student has 2 hours a day , the course could easily be covered in ten weeks. However, one of the purposes of the course is to enthuse the student and the questions asked may encourage the student to spend hours reading newspaper articles. There are also 24 workbooks that, if filled in, will easily take another 120 hours. (This is a very intensive course!)

How is the course structured?

The lectures follow the standard Advanced Economic syllabus. So, video, then an extension document. Then the next video. There are many, many revision questions.

Why take this course?

So many reasons!

1. To quickly gain an understanding of microeconomics and macroeconomics

2. To be able to assess and evaluate America's economic policies

3. To be able to assess and evaluate the UK's 'alternative' economic policies

4. In the final extended section you can thoroughly test yourself and really see if you understand the economics behind current articles. These lectures are boosted by repeats of earlier lectures. Thus: R-E-V-I-S-I-O-N
