The Student's Book contains 48 modules in eight units. Each unit deals with a key sector of activity in the business world. There are six different types of module:

About business: These modules contain information and language for the topic area of each unit.

Vocabulary: These modules build on the important words and phrases associated with the topic and provide thorough practice.

Grammar: These modules help students practise the grammar in a communicative and meaningful way, in business situations relating to the unit topic.

Speaking: These modules develop understanding and speaking skills in typical business situations. In these modules, students build up a checklist of useful expressions to use in the speaking activities.

Writing: These modules provide practice for the most important types of document student will need to write at work. They analyse a model text, focus on key language and use both as a basis for doing a writing output activity.

Case study: The case studies provide an opportunity to apply all the language, skills and ideas students have worked on in the unit. They present authentic problem-solving situations similar to those students will meet in business.

The Business eWorkbook provides everything you would find in a printed workbook, as well as extra multimedia resources. It is mainly intended for self-study or home study and contains material to support and enhance the activities in the Student's Book. There are activities to consolidate the language presented in the Student's Book. Students can practise grammar, vocabulary, listening, pronunciation, reading and writing. The Print and work area offers a pen-and-paper version of the activities in the Language practice section. The video section contains a video clip and worksheet to accompany each unit in the Student's Book. The video clips are episodes of a mini-drama that illustrate the communication and people skills in each unit, along with key unit language. The exercises allow students to practise the functional language in the video. Students can test themselves at any point in the course using the eWorkbook, by setting either the time or the number of questions. All scores from the language practice and the tests feed directly into the markbook. This markbook can be exported as a pdf.
