Business elements” (Mc Graw Hill) is a course book on Business English focused on the presentation, practice and learning of elementary issues for a student of English. The course clearly shows several points of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. It appears to be a good idea sharing brief tips on the margin of the book in order to let the student know the different ways of writing the date in the USA and in the UK. See an example:” WATCH OUT! In email addresses we say dot and not point.”

The book consists of fifteen lessons. Some of the topics include: introducing oneself to others, daily routines, applying for a job, planning, safety at work, travelling and how to book a flight, being good at writing formal letters. The authors have thought that there is a need for revision, therefore they make out a couple of revision pages too.

There are pages dedicated to specific situations on business, namely: how to answer the phone, how to say numbers, where to use ordinal or cardinal numbers, etcetera. In other words, there is a functional approach to the subject.

The course book (also a reference book) contains an appendix on the vocabulary used in every lesson, a list of common phrasal verbs and a phonetic table which can be useful. There is a list of irregular verbs as well.
