A dedicated skills book that concentrates on the skills of listening and speaking within a communicative framework.

The text focuses on broad themes—the impact of new technology on a business, entering a new market, the logistics of an industry—that are relevant to a wide range of industries.

Key Features

  • Extended listening passages as well as shorter passages
  • Listening for gist, for understanding and for specific information
  • A variety of standard English accents that international business persons will encounter
  • Listening Clinics: exercises that help learners understand English as it is naturally spoken
  • Speaking tasks: designed to extend the listening practices and cement understanding of the language and concepts introduced, and to then encourage the learners to bring their own experiences into the classroom
