Reviews
  • BEBC Book of the month: This new 124-page book aims to help business students write clear documents and is full of sound advice. ‘Writing’ certainly provides a wealth of relevant tasks: it is especially good for self-study. The ‘best practice’ section on email etiquette is excellent, and the many ‘cultural tips’ boxes are useful. One nice feature is the inclusion of memorable quotes about writing that introduce each unit. Recommended. (Reviews by Pete Sharma for the Bournemouth English Book Centre)
  • ”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.
