Business simulation games (BSGS) enhance learning, since they actively involve students in the educational process through game playing. A simulation-based learning system is adopted in this course for international trade, combining international trade-process simulation and business letter writing. We encourage students to express opinions toward the system and the quality of business letters by using quantitative and qualitative analyses.
Students are expected to improve their knowledge of international trade and business English. This course also aims to let this experience help students learn about how to work better as a team, how to maintain composure, how the business world works, and how to improve their communication skills.
