If you feel that you are a consistently good performer in English negotiations, take presiding over business meetings and conference calls in your stride or handle the computer with ease, you might well be looking to put the finishing touches and make everything you say and write in English as dazzlingly effective as it is in your native Spanish.

Being able to really put on the style in English and sail through the social occasions linked with the core business concerns can be crucial in cementing the deal and not undoing any hard work by an unnecessary slip of the tongue or an awkward silence. The book facilitates a greater use of subtlety, incisive use of colloquial language where appropriate and an area that is notoriously difficult to master in a foreign language, namely cracking jokes and humour. It offers a challenge that very few publications of its type have ever managed, combining as it does in-depth knowledge and experience of what it means to thrive in the business world along with phraseology and how to speak and write with grammatical accuracy.

You'll be able to hold your head high in whatever the circumstances English is required, knowing that you are as near to native speaker level as you can be.
