Business Result Intermediate

John Hughes and Jon Naunton, OUP;



Business Result is a multi-level course, first published in 2004. The revised versioncontains new video material and an interactive workbook, both on DVD-Rom. The videos are a highlight of this new course, and include dramatised business scenarios, documentaries on business issues and interviews with working people and experts. The sixteen units cover a wide range of topics, such as logistics, customers, projects and innovation, and common business skills, including meetings and presentations.

There is a fast-track option, suitable for short courses. The phrases in the ‘key expressions’ sections are especially useful. The case studies on topics like ‘speed networking’ are realistic, engaging and quite challenging. A number of tips are provided by experts, adding an authentic dimension to the teaching material. Highly recommended.
