Nice Business English Guide

Simple, direct, and concise read on how to improve your business writing. Chapters are brief and compact with useful recaps. The author starts with a section on how to focus and start writing. Afterwards he discusses ways to develop your writing skills and further elaborates briefly on what to avoid when writing. He ends the book with suggested approaches on common forms of business writing (e-mails, memos, reports, etc.). There are helpful appendices about useful grammar and punctual rules along with a primer of good usage. Very helpful and quick guide.

Perfect for Business English

I got this audiobook recommended by one of the classmate in the business class. There chapters are quick and most of it is common sense, but it is a good enough audiobook with some helpful things to learn. It mentioned the difference between a memo and email and it had some helpful stuff here and there. Half the audiobook is about writing, the other half is about speaking. Great business English guide I would say .

This audiobook is real help.

This audiobook is just great! It has a lot of situations and very practical. I found a lot of useful everyday phrases that I couldn't find in any other phrasebook. I didn't know how to make small talk or what to say to my English speaking colleagues in many situations. This audiobook is real help.

Pretty good.

This is a pretty useful audiobook for people who aren't native English speakers whether they are involved in business or not. The only thing I don’t like is the voice of the narrator.

Great for English workplace!

I have to say this audiobook has some really good content. I think In order to understand an English structure first we have to see the basic grammar and then have a better knowledge about it. Then after, we look at the other parts such as writing and vocabulary. I really like this since they have a broader scope of the language. This is something I would recommend for other English learners!

Overall good

Great content for business english! But the Narration speed is not consistent. I moved to the US in 1996. I went for a whole year to a school to learn English and it was a WASTE of time. I knew all the grammar but couldn't speak the language. So, 1. I started watching tv with subtitles in English. Then, 2. got a new job where people only spoke English. In three month I was able to talk to people and have a conversation. Then everything changed when I decided to go to college. I remember that my first class was American History and almost quit, it was way too hard. We are talking about 2002, we had no Google Translate but Microsoft Encyclopedia Encarta on a cd, lol, yes and dial-up modems. But after a couple of months, things got better and by the time I graduated I was able to speak English. So, my advice to you: don't translate from your language to English but think in English. Good luck!

Impressive audiobook

This audiobook is helpful and working for me. You won’t learn vocab in this audiobook, but more on speaking and writing for business use or for work. Still great!

This works for me.

I had hoped to find someone answering this kind of problems learning English, rather than studying grammar for business English. You have the answer to all my curiosity of how to improve and speak like a native.... Yes, I have been using yr techniques, but not as regular as I should. However, I m now feeling confident and feel like I m in the right track. 5 Stars for this English guide..

I would have to say this is very practical book for Business English. My speaking is ok, but I did learn quite a few things from the written part of this book. Recommend this if English is not your first language.

It is helping me to improve my pronunciation. I love the chapter on accent reduction. It really did gave me a small improvement.
