A large percentage of our students get jobs at foreign trade companies. Backstage Fashions is a woman’s fashion exporter doing business in several countries in Europe and in the USA. One of my former students works there.
As part of the 400 Project, I visited my former student and her boss. In the photo, I am talking to the manager of Back Stage. I am learning (1) what kind of English do companies need (2) what kind of English we taught our students that they use at their jobs (3) what kind of English we taught our students that they do not use at their jobs (4) what kind of English our students need but were not taught.
From this research, I am learning how to prepare our students to find jobs easier and to do great at their jobs.
