Description

What does "to reach a stalemate" mean and how is it used? What expression can be used to "state a condition"? Organized as an indexed thesaurus, this text can be used to answer both these kind of questions. It contains a range of exercises to practice idioms in natural business situations. Each entry for the 200 selected idioms gives a definition and a variety of sample contexts in which earlier expressions are also recycled and reinforced. The contextualized exercises follow a business storyline and offer practice in understanding and using business idioms. The book features: reference sections for the most common business expressions classified by usage, definitions and multiple examples for each entry, practice sections that set idioms in the context of an on-going business scenario, constant reinforcement of idioms through reading, listening and text-based tasks, and an answer key and tapescripts. An accompanying cassette with a variety of native and non-native accents is also available (ISBN 0-13-042508-7). An ELBS/LPBB edition is available.show more
