Business Update is an introduction to the English-speaking business world. It uses a procedural approach to put students at ease with English-language communication in authentic company settings. Specialist vocabulary enables students to deal with everyday office practice, such as telephoning, facts and figures, orders and customer enquiries.
Business Update provides students with the English skills they need for business using a carefully planned combination of task-based and multi-functional practice. It teaches specialist vocabulary and provides authentic business scenarios in which skills can be practiced. The approach to learning prepares students in dealing with everyday office life, such as telephoning, working with facts and figures, taking orders and dealing with customer enquiries. The series is made up of three components including a Course Book, a Workbook and a Teacher's Book.
The units provide 120+ hours of extensive practice and reference material, using many sectors of the business world as inspiration. A skills section accompanies each unit, including authentic reading passages, vocabulary building and writing and research projects.
Other useful sections in each lesson include:
• pair and group exercises,
• professional training hints on what to do in business situations
• unit-by-unit word lists
• topic word lists
• audioscripts to support activities in the Course Book and Workbook.
In the Workbook, each unit has follow up activities and a quiz to monitor the students' progress.
