FT business news lessons

Monthly business news lessons based around original articles from the Financial times, with teacher’s notes and worksheets for you to use in class. The lessons in this section are available at two levels: intermediate / upper intermediate and advanced.


In September and October 2019, to celebrate the launch of this new series, we are publishing two bonus lessons a month, using articles from the FT archive. ‘Not all high-flyers are suited to life at the top’ and ‘We need a permanent summer time to lift our mood’ are available for free as taster lessons, with the rest of the series available exclusively to onestopenglish subscribers.

Please note: When we select the articles from the FT, our aim is to choose a mix of interesting, mainstream business-focused topics which will retain their relevance for some time after publication, and our worksheets are written with this in mind. We hope this means you will feel comfortable choosing lessons for your classes from the full FT business news lessons archive. However, please be aware that occasionally the articles themselves, which we publish without any editorial changes, may contain short references to the time they were written. All articles include the original publication date for this reason.
