Time commitment

On average participants spend a minimum of 7 hours per week online and doing tasks. The workload depends on you, how much do you want to invest into the course, and how much do you want to get out of the course. The more time you are prepared to invest, the more you will get out of this course. What is great about this online Business English course, is that you do not have fixed times when you have to be online, so you can tailor the course around your workload.
