BEhereBEthere is a free eLearning website for Business English. The name means ‘Business English here, Business English there.’ BEhereBEthere is the ‘baby’ of just one person, Paul Emmerson, a well-known figure in the Business English world who works as a writer, teacher, teacher trainer and website owner. You can find out the background story behind BEhereBEthere by reading this article.
This is one of the best business English resources I've come across in quite a while. The site is clean and uncluttered (no ads!), and the learning materials are top quality. I particularly like the section on Meetings, which features a video case study based on a negotiation at three different language levels! There's also a role play, which would make a perfect classroom follow-up. Meanwhile, in the Management Tools section you can choose to hear the text read in British or American English, which is a nice touch. Those are just a couple of the many excellent resources available on the site, which is under constant development with new content being added every couple of months.
Although there are lot of business English resources available on the web (see here and here, for example), I've yet to come across a site that offers such a wide range of professionally-produced interactive content — and all for free! A must for learners and teachers of business English.
