Thematic texts covering ten area of business serve as the platform for this business English textbook. The intended audience is the first-year student in higher education. Business examples, diagrams, activities and questioning are provided as the essential foundation for understanding how English is used in the business world. Each unit is brief, allowing time for interactive participation between students. Biz-E Basics highlights over 350 business vocabulary in the context of each unit. The focus is not on memorization or translation, but rather the student's ability to understand how business vocabulary is used and to master their meaning through questioning and other activities. Questions at the end of each unit check for language comprehension and invite conversations in English about current events regarding the topics. Activities include completing tables (units 1, 3, 4, 6), diagrams (units 2, 6, 7), dominoes (unit 3), and a crossword (unit 7). The business correspondence sections of units one to three provide the framework for exercises in writing an application letter, an enquiry, a letter of complaint, placing an order, completing an invoice and creating a survey. The final unit requires students to distinguish false friends in a business email. Students use Biz-E Basics actively, completing exercises in the built-in white space found throughout the book. Instructors using Biz-E Basics may purchase a Teacher's Guide directly from the author via http: // This guide contains not only answers to unit questions, activities and correspondence exercises, but also includes transparencies and worksheets to use in the classroom. Finally, a low price fits both student and teacher budgets. Biz-E Basics provides the main course for business English at a fair price.
