About The Product

THE WORKING WEEK emphasizes speaking, listening and problem solving at work. Each unit is based in a different company during the morning or afternoon of the five working days. This course teaches students to do their job in English - not just to talk about work.


  • Includes realistic business situations: problem solving, listening to telephone messages, checking information, being diplomatic, getting things done, handling complaints, arranging a meeting, and more.
  • Students will find intensive listening activities, pronunciation practice, grammar and vocabulary review, everyday short writing activities, pair and group work, phone, fax, and e-mail discussions.
  • The Instructor's Manual contains the student book, answer key, and teacher's notes.
  • The 90-minute audio tape contains the dialogues, pronunciation activities and more.
