Business Options completes Oxford's series of business English courses and is suitable for professional people from all areas of business, particularly those functioning in an international environment. It is aimed at business people who already have a good working knowledge of the language, but who lack confidence when they are required to step outside their own professional area. Each of the 14 units is based around a theme, such as Performance and Trade, as a means of focusing on real business situations. These include formal scenarios inside the workplace, as well as more informal exchanges in social settings. A strong feature of the material is its attention to social and cultural awareness, often the most difficult area for students at this level.
