GCSE Business Studies for Overseas students

This manual consists of articles from overseas newspapers. Each article has been chosen because it is as current as possible plus it uses the type of vocabulary that overseas students often find difficult. As the articles are from newspapers worldwide there is every chance that most overseas students will recognise some of the titles. This should aid learning.

Accompanying the articles are ideas as to how they may be used in class.

Finally there is a ‘five-minute closer’. This is an idea that can be used to close off the lesson. Such ideas may be:

  1. A made up word. Why not get the class to make up business words – the work must include a definition
  2. A marketing idea. Would this idea work?
  3. A motivational idea – would this motivate workers?
  4. Business jargon. Not specifically in the syllabus but a term that may be read in newspapers/textbooks
  5. Business quotation – apply this to the syllabus
  6. New words accepted into the British language. What new words will we discover in 2004?
  7. Definitions: these are taken directly from the syllabus.
  8. A non-business quotation – how could this be applied to the syllabus? (Image? – see Gary Lineker’s ears!)

Thank you so much for everything. Your in-put into Tom’s economics has made a massive difference to him. He has also enjoyed you teaching him, which is more than half of the battle I guess. Thanks also for your understanding with Tom’s stress levels! Hopefully now exams are over (or tomorrow, should I say), things will only improve now! Can’t thank you enough. Your reputation was excellent when we first heard of you, but having experienced the effect your teaching has, you deserve even better! Obviously Tom will be emailing you tomorrow to let you know how he got on and meantime, enough of my compliments! With best wishes. - Sue, Parent
