Part of a new four-level Business English course written specifically for those who are required to communicate effectively in the modern business environment. Throughout the preparation and testing of Business Life the focus has been on providing language which is essential for this purpose. The series has been written by authors with a wide experience of teaching English for business in a range of international contexts, countries and cultures. Learners are able to follow fast, standard or comprehensive tracks through the materials respecting the modern need for flexibility. Business Life also follows a progressive and comprehensive grammar syllabus, with the stress on the effective use of the grammar for clear communication. It satisfies the requirements of the Common European Framework, BEC and equivalent global testing authorities.
