A collaboration between Speak!’s ESL Team and faculty, staff and students at some of the nation’s top business schools, B-Speak!’s over-arching goal is to increase the fluency, accuracy and comprehensibility of MBA students who are non-native speakers of English. To demonstrate leadership in the B-School environment, students must initiate and respond spontaneously, which is a challenge for many speakers of English as a Second Language. Cognitive-oral skills in the classroom and at learning team sessions include the ability to describe, define, decide, challenge and defend. The case method, even if predominantly quantitative, requires correct English pronunciation and intonation, standard grammar and proper pacing. Although admitted students will have mastered the basics of American English, the ability to communicate in a clear, convincing way may still be out of reach. Combining flexible, personalized face-to-face lessons (in-person or online) with a supplementary/complementary online curriculum, B-Speak! instructors act as linguistic-cultural coaches, helping students practice and polish their English over the summer months so that they can start the MBA program with confidence and raised hands.
