Abstract: International communication in business requires adequate skills in English. For

this purpose, the global community requires a working force who can not only use the English

language for reception of information but also for oral and written production. It is thus vital

for educational institutions to prepare students ef􀏐iciently and possibly more than ever, for

fast and reliable oral communication with the help of Skype or video conferences. At the same

time the curricula of higher education are 􀏐illed with what the students need in many other

respects to be able to succeed in their future career. Studies of language can therefore be

challenged by other courses and activities, all necessary to have at hand in a more complex and

demanding working environment. Motivation is central in students’ learning and therefore it

is crucial to create conditions for learning languages that students experience as both relevant and authentic-like.
