Words at Work offers vocabulary development for learners who want to use English more effectively in their working lives. The 17 topic-based units cover a wide variety of business themes and include useful learning tips. A cassette or audio CD of listening and pronunciation activities complements the book.
'If learners were to adopt the systematic approaches suggested in the materials and apply them also to their own work context, they would have a very effective learning tool and would quickly build up a rich and varied active vocabulary.' Authentically English, 1996 'This is an excellent book, one that is a useful supplement in the classroom ... I have also found some of the cartoons to be great for eliciting learners' ideas and brainstorming known vocabulary. Highly recommended.' SATEFL Newsletter, 1997 'This book is a good supplementary resource for any Business English course. Students can then work through part of the material on their own, while other activities can be done in class.' VVLE Newsletter, Belgium, 1997 'The students I used the book with had previously worked only with general courses and were pleased to be confronted with themes and vocabulary relevant to their working lives.' ETAS, Switzerland, 1997
