English for Meetings and Negotiations is part of a series of courses for follow-up students focused on functional language. The course is intended for students at the upper intermediate level.

The course focuses on a collaborative model of the English language intended for a range of business or business meetings and negotiations. Although the course is not primarily focused on confrontational negotiation and communication strategies, part of the explanation is devoted to strategies and language for preventing and coping with confrontational situations.

The course is based on the modern, increasingly widespread model of „International English“, ie international English understood as lingua franca. Listening materials work with recordings of native speakers of all English styles and focus on collocations and idiomatics of American and British English.
