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.
