Business English

business-english-angle-1

I started teaching Business English long before any other type of English and managed Business English departments in Poland and Italy. For a number of years I prepared teachers to take the LCCIEB First Business Certificate and ran teacher training course in Business English. Since writing my first teacher’s book for Oxford University Press, I’ve authored and co-authored a number of Business English titles, the best-known being Business Result. In 2016, I co-wrote ETpedia Business English with Robert McLarty which went on to win BESIG’s David Riley Award for Innovation in Business English and ESP.  Below you will find links to a selection of articles on the topic and a list of my main titles.
