Are you a fan of Höhle der Löwen, Sharks‘ Tank, or the British series Dragons‘ Den? If so, I have an exciting opportunity for you to immerse yourself in the world of entrepreneurial pitches and sharpen your business English skills. Welcome to „In the Den with Dave,“ – a webinar designed to enhance your business vocabulary, connect you with like-minded individuals, and provide an engaging platform to speak and practice business English.

Dragons‘ Den, the hit TV show where entrepreneurs present their business ideas to a panel of wealthy investors, has captivated audiences worldwide. Now, you have the chance to join me in a 1 ½-hour Dragons‘ Den session, where we will delve into the world of business pitches, analyze strategies, and learn valuable vocabulary in the process.

The benefits:

You will learn more business vocabulary.

You will meet and work with other like-minded people.

You will speak, speak, speak, and even more speak business English.

Here’s what you can expect from the webinar:

1. Introduction and Q&A: We’ll start with a brief introduction where you’ll get to know each other and me and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

2. Meet the Dragons: We’ll learn more about the Dragons featured in the selected episode and explore their backgrounds and investment interests.

3. Pitch Analysis: We’ll watch the opening few minutes of the Dragons‘ Den episode, focusing on the entrepreneur’s pitch. Afterwards, we’ll split into smaller breakout rooms to discuss the pitch, the product, the company’s valuation, and potential questions the Dragons may ask.

4. Vocabulary and Grammar: Throughout the session, we’ll pause the video at certain points to examine vocabulary, grammar, and notable statements. This will help you gain a deeper understanding of business terminology and improve your language skills.

5. Feedback and Discussion: Following the breakout sessions, we’ll reconvene in the main room for a feedback session. We’ll discuss the insights gained from the breakout discussions, share different perspectives, and analyze the entrepreneurs‘ strategies.

“In the Den with Dave” is a new format, and I enjoyed it very much. The challenge is to understand native speakers and to understand the content fully, especially when people all speak at the same time. Dave asked questions to encourage understanding of the content of the conversation. Listening is one thing, understanding is another. With his charming manner, Dave corrected us and gave us help with wording or vocabulary. I will be there next time and can absolutely recommend this form of English training. 5+ stars.
