Delta Business Communication Skills Series

The Delta Business Communication Skills series is designed to help learners at the pre-intermediate and intermediate level to master the key communication skills required in international business English today.
Each book and accompanying audio CD provides six core units, each containing these sections:
● context to raise awareness of the skills involved in effective communication and to introduce different strategies for developing these skills
● presentation and practice of core language connected to each skill
● consolidation, which allows students to apply what they have learned to their real-life work situation
