Can anyone recommend a course book for adult needing business English?


Ha! There are vast numbers of business English texts out there, so you'd best go to an ESL bookstore and look through them all until you find one that suits your purposes re level and coverage.

I happen to have around a straightforward series from Cambridge UP called Business Vocabulary in Use. Its advantages are that each lesson is short and it comes in texts at 4 levels of fluency. However, it does not include a listening component (i.e. a CD). It is for discussion and vocabulary building. For listening activity, the students listen to me!


Thank you for the recommendation. Will have a look at it now. Have bought a couple of the Powerbase series by Longman but don't meet my student until tomorrow so need to assess before I buy anything else.
