We know you're busy!

The Essential Guide to Business English has been designed for busy people. Use it at your desk and while travelling to find the information you need quickly and easily.

There are three parts to the guide:

The Book — 160 pages about essential business activities — meetings, telephoning, presenting, negotiating, and socializing.

MP3 listening scripts — 13 listening exercises to help you learn key expressions and improve your comprehension and pronunciation.

Website Updates — accessed with a password, this unique feature keeps the guide up-to-date and dynamic by regularly adding new information.

You don't have to read this book from cover to cover! Just use it as a practical, reference tool whenever you need it. For example...

I have to chair an important meeting in English next week. How do I prepare?
With The Essential Guide to Business English, simply refer to the section on chairing. This will give you the key expressions you need to chair the meeting in a very professional way.

Then, listen to the meetings scripts, perhaps in your car, until these expressions become automatic.

My job responsibilities have recently changed and I now have to use English on the telephone.
Don't worry! Just study the chapter on telephoning and listen to the MP3 scripts.

In an ideal world, Business English training would consist of the three components shown opposite.

In the real world, this is not always possible. At the end of the day, much of your progress will depend on your self-study programme.

The Essential Guide to Business English is a practical, user-friendly guide intended for anyone with approximately a pre-intermediate level of English and above.

Used in conjunction with the ongoing website updates, it will help you to become more confident and effective doing business in English.
