    Conduct a Needs Analysis
    You need business English skills. There are many ways to do it. You can either prepare for a BEC examination or target your needs whether general or specific. Do your needs relate to general business English skills? You need:

    Commmunication skills
    1. Verbal communication: phone, face-to-face
    2. Print communication: business correspondence and internal communication: memo writing
    3. Non-verbal communication: body language and cultural differences
    4. Language of meetings, presenttations, and negotiations and other business situations

    Are your need more specific? you need to specify them and target them accordingly either by doing a course, reading business English books and communicating with business partners.....The internet might help you as well.
