English for Law, Business & Entrepreneurship




The book is divided into three parts: law, business, and public speaking. Part one deals with legal English and provides a highly practical approach to the use of English in commercial legal contexts, and covers crucial law terminology and legal concepts. Part two is designed to teach you to communicate effectively in English in professional contexts. You will expand your English vocabulary, improve your ability to write and speak in English in both social, business and professional interactions, and learn terminology and skills that you can apply to business negotiations, telephone conversations, written reports and emails, and professional presentations. Part three will provide you with the instruction, experience, and practice to develop and deliver compelling presentations. Drawing from the established knowledge in communication, rhetoric, linguistics, and argumentation, this part balances proven ideas with lots of speech practice.
