This highly practical course bridges the gap between general English and the professional world of working adults. The syllabus is based on the needs of people in work who use English as an international means of communication. It addresses the needs of adults who use English in their professional lives, but who find that general coursebooks are too general, and Business English courses too specialized. The course makes full use of the experience, motivation and skills of working adult learners - units are topic-based with sophisticated international topics appropriate to adult learners. Students are encouraged to communicate confidently in a range of realistic professional situations, including socializing, making contacts and telephoning, and authentic contexts are used to present grammar structures using a discovery method. The teacher's resource book offers: strong support; practical unit overviews; detailed teaching notes; and a resource file with extra photocopiable activities, fully cross-referenced to the student's book.
