4.0 out of 5 stars developing your listening skills 4 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really satisfied with this purchase : the content is clearly displayed in the book map, listening activities are carefully graded with special focus on pronunciation. It is really challenging and is a must for anyone who is considering working in a multi-cultural environment.
I presented it to colleagues to share their views and they all very keen on using the book to supplement their classes
One final note : it is definitely suited for students of minimum B1 if not B2 level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 29 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
it is an excellent book for business purposes because sometimes teachers cannot find real listenings dealing with business so it is very good to have everything in only one book.
