Spanish for Business is a communicative-based book designed to help professionals already working in the field, or pre-professionals getting ready to work in one of the many areas of business to use “real-life language” on the job—immediately. Each chapter focuses on a different business setting—from seeking employment, business travel, and sales and marketing in both retail and wholesale arenas, to banking and finance, manufacturing, import/export, laws and regulations, and e-commerce/technology—and provides vocabulary basic to that particular context. For professionals in the field, or professionals about to enter the field who want to master “need to know” language and put it to immediate use.
