Smashwords book reviews by David Petrie

  • 10 Quick Prep 1-2-1 Business English Activities About Work Life on May 03, 2016

    This is a great resource for teachers with one-to-one business clients who need activities that will prompt discussion, generate language and offer the opportunity to build and extend out of what the learner already knows. These are not so much "activities" per se, they are really mini-lessons that you can pick up and take into class with no more preparation than making sure you have pen and paper - and possibly a smart phone for some of the tasks. If you teach one to one business clients, you should download this book.
