Incoming Foreign Students as a Resource for Improving Student Language Skills
Moreno, Alonso; Castilla, Francisca; Cámara, Macario; Chamorro, Eva
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v24 n2 p107-124 2013
This article presents the results of a pilot scheme carried out at the University of Jaén and aimed at improving the level of English of Administration and Business Management students, through the participation of a group of incoming foreign students who teach Business English during their stay at this university. This research has allowed us to obtain feedback about the improvement in the listening and speaking skills in students who have taken part in this activity and, also, about how it has motivated the foreign tutors by encouraging a fuller integration within their new environment.
