The Business 2.0

Based on user feedback, research into business English studies and the evolving needs of employers, The Business 2.0 builds on the success of the first edition and offers students the confidence, language and skills they need to succeed in the competitive international business environment.

The Business 2.0 is a compact course that offers the same breadth of material as a course with hundreds of components. There are transparent links in every module to one of the core business areas: personal development, service, supply chain, management, sales and marketing, enterprise, finance and international trade. In addition, the course has a strong focus on intangible business skills: emotional intelligence and interpersonal abilities, meaning students are prepared with both business language and skills, as well as a well-rounded and receptive approach to dealing professionally with others.

What makes The Business 2.0 special?

- The flexible approach provided by the modular structure of the course allows students and teachers to dip in and out of units and use the material to suit their needs.

- The eWorkbook provides extra language practice, as well as audio and video downloadable to a tablet or phone for on-the-go learning. New videos offer models, both positive and negative, for the final speaking task, with commentaries by experts.

- A Business Fundamentals section at the beginning of every level offers an overview of how business works with language and topics including business organization, financial control, economics and supply chain, and CVs and covering letters.

- Special speaking tasks and case studies focus on vital interpersonal skills, in particular emotional intelligence, helping create great professionals.

- Eight Case Studies in every level provide students with authentic problem-solving situations like those encountered in real business environments, giving students the opportunity to apply all the language and skills they have been learning.

- The Teacher’s Resource Disc provides plenty of additional multimedia material to support and enhance lessons, including PowerPoint presentations and videos to supplement language and skills areas.
