Editorial Reviews

'As well as being ideal for self-study, this title would also be a useful addition to a business English teacher's bookshelf as it covers a range of theoretical aspects of business, eg relationship-building styles, and also contains a selection of up-to-date functional language. Needless to say, it is also a good source of lesson ideas.'Julie Allen, Exeter, UK, English Teaching professional (Issue 89 November 2013)'Finally, modern, well-written and practical Business English texts that are perfect for reference and/or classroom use.' Peter A. Lewis-Watts, Certified ESL Instructor, Barrie, Ontario, Canada.Praise for a previous edition:'.a welcome addition to Business English literature . the book incorporates pertinent and up-to-date research findings . readers are encouraged to appreciate the role of possible factors that shape communication, including communicative purposes, cultural differences and expectations, gender, contexts, and much more. Readers will benefit from the links between theoretical research findings and pedagogy.'ELT Journal, April 2012
