Ethics and ac­count­ing

Business Spotlight - - FEEDBACK -

I am a free­lance English teacher in the Ravens­burg area and I use Busi­ness Spot­light with my stu­dents. One of them, a Ger­man PHD stu­dent, needs to im­prove his vo­cab­u­lary in the ar­eas of fi­nance and con­trol­ling, and micro­eco­nomics. My stu­dent’s sub­ject area is busi­ness ethics and he found your ar­ti­cle from two years ago (“Money or morals?”, Busi­ness Spot­light 1/2016) very help­ful. He even con­tacted the au­thor, Vicki Sussens, af­ter read­ing it. Mean­while, I think that ac­count­ing could be an in­ter­est­ing topic for your English for... sec­tion.

Thank you for your sug­ges­tion and for your in­ter­est in our mag­a­zine. In our Skill Up! book­let num­ber 36 (is­sue 1/2016), we dealt with the topic of fi­nance. On the topic of micro­eco­nomics, we ex­am­ined var­i­ous apects of sup­ply and de­mand in our Talk­ing Fi­nance sec­tion in Busi­ness Spot­light 3/2013 and 4/2013. Your stu­dent might also find the micro­eco­nomics videos of the Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org) use­ful. We cov­ered the topic of “ac­count­ing” sev­eral years ago, but it is cer­tainly one that we could do again in the English for... sec­tion. The Ed­i­tor
