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!

    How to use this Italian vocabulary book:Not sure where to start? We suggest you first work your way through the verbs, adjectives and phrases chapters in part one of the book. This will give you a great base for further studying and already enough vocabulary for basic communication. The Italian dictionaries in part two and three can be used whenever needed to look up words you hear on the street, English words you want to know the Italian translation for or simply to learn some new words.
     
    Some final thoughts:Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work very well. Together with the basic Italian dictionary parts, this vocabulary book is a great resource to support you throughout the process of learning Italian and comes in particularly handy at times when there is no internet to look up words and phrases.
