Authentic language for business today
- Audio CD
|Series:||Delta Natural English|
Natural Business English is for people who want to learn the real language of international business today. It covers essential business vocabulary and expressions as well as presenting and practising authentic business language, using idiomatic expressions and metaphorical language. This book is designed to help learners to understand authentic business English, and to practise using it in appropriate ways to improve their fluency.
Natural Business English can be used in class or for self-study. It is suitable for people studying business English, doing courses with a business English component at university or equivalent level, as well as those already working who need English in their careers.
Natural Business English covers both essential and authentic business language that will lead to students’ fluency in the following key areas:
- Units 1-4 look at people, leaders, organisations and mergers and acquisitions
- Units 5-8 cover manufacturing, retailing, services and business operations
- Units 9-12 deal with products and customers, marketing and strategy
- Units 13-16 look at research and development, human resources, accounting and finance
- Units 17-20 deal with financial markets, economic information, the global economy and the future of business
After each block of four units, there is a two-page review section. In each of these, there are sixty questions relating to language presented in the previous units. Learners can consolidate learning, test themselves and use the answer key to check their progress.
Natural Business English contains a glossary of words and expressions, and is also accompanied by a CD with audio presentation of much of the language in the book. This input includes business people and business experts speaking, conversations, and research interviews, all of which help learners to improve their pronunciation as well as enrich their vocabulary.
The book is clearly laid out and has an up-to-the-minute approach to business issues, terminology and idioms.
