Nice Business English Guide

Simple, direct, and concise read on how to improve your business writing. Chapters are brief and compact with useful recaps. The author starts with a section on how to focus and start writing. Afterwards he discusses ways to develop your writing skills and further elaborates briefly on what to avoid when writing. He ends the book with suggested approaches on common forms of business writing (e-mails, memos, reports, etc.). There are helpful appendices about useful grammar and punctual rules along with a primer of good usage. Very helpful and quick guide.

Perfect for Business English

I got this audiobook recommended by one of the classmate in the business class. There chapters are quick and most of it is common sense, but it is a good enough audiobook with some helpful things to learn. It mentioned the difference between a memo and email and it had some helpful stuff here and there. Half the audiobook is about writing, the other half is about speaking. Great business English guide I would say .

Pretty good.

This is a pretty useful audiobook for people who aren't native English speakers whether they are involved in business or not. The only thing I don’t like is the voice of the narrator.

This audiobook is real help.

This audiobook is just great! It has a lot of situations and very practical. I found a lot of useful everyday phrases that I couldn't find in any other phrasebook. I didn't know how to make small talk or what to say to my English speaking colleagues in many situations. This audiobook is real help.

Happy with the purchase

I just listen to this audiobook twice. I find that the content is really helpful for people like me. English is not my first language, so It’s tough to work at a English speaking workplace. The thing I like about this audiobook is it focus on both written and speaking, so I learn a little for both. I would Recommend this if your English is not your first language and you need to work at an English speaking place.
