Market Leader Live will transform the way people learn:
It provides students with the ultimate contextual, immersive environment
It offers the opportunity for Business English students to network, practice and learn with other students from around the world
It is flexible: students can connect to Market Leader Live at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
It gives access to Pearson’s authoritative business sources, including the FT
Classes are conducted by experienced Business English teachers from the UK, US and Australia
Stephen Nicholl, Editorial Director, Business English at Pearson said, "We were impressed by Languagelab’s ability to move the Market Leader case studies into an entirely new learning space, which we believe will offer students a level of interaction not seen before in Business English learning."
