4.0 out of 5 stars includes listening exercises! 7 Sep 2007
By ursulaf
I have been using this for teaching Business English to German companies. For B1s and below the explanations are sometimes too detailed and can be confusing, but for more advanced learners it covers many angles other grammar books do not include. For beginners I would recommend Duckworth's Business Grammar (Oxford) as the exercises are more repetitive and simpler. All in all, it works very well with a good variety of exercises, some on the audio CD and I can recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really well done 7 Nov 2010
As a Business English trainer it's often difficult to find a really good Business English topic to work with when you're attempting to teach grammar to adults. This book really fits the bill in those terms. Great examples and even better exercises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eminently useful for teaching 28 April 2010
By D. Van Wynen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For those teaching English to businessmen and others, Emmerson's Business Grammar Builder is a highly useful book. I find Emmerson's approach very helpful: each chapter contains
(a)a section explaining the form a particular grammatical structure takes (or in the case of verbs how to go about forming them).
(b)an explanation of how the structured is used (and many examples!)
(c)the time expressions used with the verb form or other information relevant to the grammatical structure
(d)many, many exercises enabling the student to practice and test his or her understanding of what has just been presented.

As usual, my only wish is that I could get the text and exercises in an electronic form WITH the book (which I would not wish to be without) so that I could combine what Emmerson has to say about the grammar with what other excellent authors have said. This would enable me to develop just the resource I need to address the very specific problems my students have with the language.
