Summary

Do you spend hours writing and rewriting emails or presentations in English? 
Do you secretly hope that the phone won’t ring, because you’re worried about speaking English to colleagues or customers? 
Do you dread having to give verbal updates at meetings if they’re held in English? 
I work with people who need to use English at work. I’ve discovered that often, helping my customers to develop their language skills isn’t enough. What they really want are opportunities to work on subjects that are directly relevant to them, and strategies for using this knowledge in the every-day business situations in which they find themselves. 
In the 50 chapters of this book, I provide tips on how to deal with a range of situations and how to increase your confidence, perform at your best and portray yourself in a positive light. These situations include contributing to meetings in English, using the telephone, taking part in networking events, going for job interviews and having general conversations. 
I also look at some of the problems that people have in terms of improving their English and some possible solutions. The problems include fear of speaking, not being able to find the right course, not having time to learn and not being able to remember new vocabulary. There are also more general tips about what you can do to make language learning a part of your everyday routine, and not just something that you try to squeeze in when you have time. 
The book is 50,000 words long and it is split into 50 chapters. However, you don’t have to read it from start to finish. For best results, see which chapters are relevant to your personal circumstances and start with those!
