Mr. Masoni is now being prepared for his first trip to the United Kingdom and, as part of this preparation, he has been signed up for a course in business English. The first step in devising the course is that of conducting a language analysis through the following lenses:
The needs in terms of outcomes
Target performance objectives
Performance areas in terms of language
The first step is that of understating the roles, responsibilities and functions of an environmental engineer. Environmental engineers traditionally "esearch, design, plan, or perform engineering duties in the prevention, control, and remediation of environmental hazards using various engineering disciplines. Work may include waste treatment, site remediation, or pollution control technology" (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010).
Commonly, the activities of environmental engineers include:
Visiting various sites, assessing them and interacting with the people around those sites
Tendering for projects, such as plantations, assessments of pollution levels, river controls and so on Gathering….

In practice, TESOL is often used as synonymous with TESL or TEFL, where the acronyms stand for Teaching English as a Second Language and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. TESOL has however become more popular than these two concepts since its focus is that of language development for the students, without the differentiation of the English language as a second language or as a language taught to people speaking foreign languages (Beare). According to some sources even, TESOL would be a combination of the two TEFL and TESL (TESOL Direct).
At a general level, TEFL integrated programs of English teaching for the people who lived in countries where English was not commonly spoken. The students of TEFL would normally need basic English language knowledge so that they could maintain communications and gather necessary information in their trips to English speaking countries. In the case of TESL, these courses were….

Wishing they were more or less in use is not an option; they simply are here to stay and are becoming even more insidious. For example, most memos are now sent via email -- and many of the protocols of business English are often not followed when utilizing email -- which changes the standard of usage within the workplace. Similarly, with so much diversity, working from home, globalization, out-sourcing, and innovative managerial techniques in place, the use of email is almost a requirement; the use of text and smartphone email equally so; with video conferencing as a tool to save money and increase productivity important as well. The challenge, though, is twofold: how to keep a standard of appropriate mechanics (grammar, punctuation, spelling, format) with so many quick communication alternatives in business that do not engender formal writing? Second, many business users report feeling quite overwhelmed with texts, IMs,….
In such an environment, linguistic knowledge can be acquired directly as tacit knowledge, without formalizing it as grammar rules or vocabulary lists. At the same time, scenario-based learning allows learners to focus on the target context of language usage (in our case -- business English communication), resulting in more student interest and involvement in the learning tasks. (Bin Baharum et al. 2007)
There are of course negative aspects to consider in this form of teaching. One of these aspects that come to the fore in many studies is that it is relatively expensive and requires small classrooms so that active participation can take place. This is a problem especially in developing counties where the number of students in classrooms tends to be large. One solution to this problem is a more extensive and intensive use of the Internet and online learning as an additional teaching and learning medium. This important….

Exhibit B: Cash Flow Statement, Year Two
At this point, the business is earning a healthy return and Mr. Ahn is receiving will be able to bring in a reasonable salary. The nature of the business may well change at this point. At the maximum revenue of $144,000 per year the pretax profit would be $63,600. As a result, it is likely that a clinic will be formed with other practitioners in order to minimize expenses and increase profitability.
e did not include taxes in our cash flow examples because the company is going to be set up as a sole proprietorship. This means that the income from the company will be rolled into the income for Mr. Ahn, as well as his liabilities. Mr. Ahn's personal expenses are therefore not included in the model,….

The decision of the type of business entity will take into consideration control, taxation, and liability issues. eview of the laws and regulations that each ownership group must consider and identification of risks that the businesses should protect against will be discussed. eview of the construction company's business structure and how it affects control, taxation, and liability issues along with how employment law impacts….

Description of the Business
The business is a gourmet candy shop. The shop will sell gourmet candy that has been sourced from all over the world. The shop will operate with one storefront location, and there will be an Internet/mail order component as well.
The rationale for the business is simply. There is a growing trend towards hedonistic approaches to dining. We have seen in the past few years the rise of the bacon fetish, high end craft beer and coffee, cupcakes, the move of fine dining to the mass market and a full embrace by Americans of better quality indulgent goods. Much of this trend can be credited to the aging of the population, as people seek to maximize pleasure. They have the financial means to treat themselves, and seek to balance this hedonism with a desire to be healthy. The intersection of these ideals is where indulgences are small,….

However, as Nick is unqualified for the position, the medical question is moot -- Nick would not be hired because he has no experience.
Michelle has some past experience and would be under consideration. Under the terms of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of pregnancy in employment. The Act does not explicitly prohibit Mei-Lin from inquiring about the pregnancy, but it is recommended that she refrain from doing so, as that inquiry could be used against the company in a discrimination suit should Michelle not be hired. Although ethics are not encompassed in the law, from an ethical point-of-view it would be irresponsible for SureBuild to hire Michelle, as working as a jackhammer operator would put the fetus at risk, there could be legal action taken against the company as a result for failing to provide the fetus with adequate duty of care.

As a result, we expect to hit the market with premium pricing. The price point will also be set in accordance with the data gathered from our target market research.
A promotional message will need to be finalized and an advertising agency selected in order to help us build our promotional campaign. The promotional message will vary depending on the target market, focusing on different elements of the product. Two main features of all promotions, however, will be building brand awareness and promoting the product's innovative technology. Building brand awareness is critical because the brand is unknown at this time. By developing a brand, we will be positioned to extend that brand in the future. The main selling point of the device will be the technology. This message will be positioned more in light of what this technology allows the customer to do -- the coolness of the device is….
This would have been a truly unethical action.
The second objection that can be brought to the sustained thesis is represented by the fact that censorship is a violation of several human rights. These rights include the right to freedom of speech, the right to self-expression and the right to be well informed. It might be argued that Google made a mistake and created a precedent, proving that totalitarian regime scan impose their rules even upon independent companies because these companies are more interested in obtaining financial profits rather than defending human rights and liberties.
This may be true to a certain limited extent. Supposing that Google had refused to implement its dot cn service. In this manner it would have made a statement regarding censorship and freedom. but, at the same time, it would have failed to serve the Chinese people in any way.

India is one of the oldest and most impressive global cultures. And its culture has also impacted the means in which business is conducted. One specific means is represented by the language barriers which are raised. And not only that the representatives of the two countries would speak different languages, it is highly possible that the representatives of India speak different languages among themselves. This is because the states of India have different official languages, and some states even have more than one official language (Kwintessential).

Felipe's inability to speak English would be a liability to the company and a possible safety threat, so he should not be hired as well. That leaves Eric and Michelle, who are both qualified candidates and could therefore both be hired. Even though Eric does not have a high school diploma, his life experience should make up for the lack of education, and he knows how to work a jackhammer. Michelle is perfectly qualified, and cannot be turned down solely because of her (supposed) pregnancy, and is therefore the top choice according to the criteria. However, if either of their interviews provided a legitimate reason to why they would not be able to work, they would not have to be hired.

This is when the overall amounts of responsibilities are limited to: the percentage of ownership of the different shareholders. As a far as control is concerned, this means that management must carefully monitor who they are hiring to work as the jackhammer operator. The reason why, is because of the possibility of the on the job injuries that are work related. Taxation issues are limited mainly to the percentage of ownership of the various shareholders. As all income from the business will be divided and reported on the individual tax returns of the business owners. The possible liability issues include: workplace injuries, negligence and the loss of income that an employee can claim (in the event they are injured).

Professional practice: An LLC, or limited liability corporation, is the most popular type of entity structure for professional groups such as doctor's offices, accountants, and other small enterprises. As owners, Akiva and Tara would not be personally liable for the debts of the LLC, although constructing the entity is more complicated, legally, than a joint proprietorship.

Businesses are the cornerstone of a capitalistic society. Businesses often drive economic growth and overall societal prosperity. In many instances, business can enhance the overall quality of life of those living in civilization. Looking back briefly at history, provides a unique perspective of business as it relates to societal development. Currently, looking at a minimum wage individual living in America today, they are able to perform tasks and activities that many of the wealthiest individuals in society during 1900 could only dream of. The minimum wage individual can watch television, listen to music on a cell phone, use the internet and even control the weather within their vehicle. This has occurred primarily due to the profit incentive embedded in a capitalistic society. The same will occur with Alex, Bill, Carl, Devon, and Xavier as there farm business developments. These same principles are present for all Christians who want their business….
