Everything You Want to Say in Business English : Excelling in Spanish
A Unique "Dictionary" With Phrases & Scenarios From the Business WorldeBook - 2016
Conceived and written by Dr. Emmanuel Skourtis and his team, this guide breaks entirely new ground in serving the needs of the business person operating daily in an English speaking environment and who is invariably required to take the lead. First and foremost, the team has been carefully assembled to include highly rated and distinguished people from a broad range of fields as well as experts in all the grammatical, syntactical, lexicographical and idiomatic elements of English. Add to this Dr. Skourtis' own 25 years of top international executive experience and fluent use of English in this capacity and you can be sure of a very highly advanced, focused and comprehensive product which will very quickly become an indispensable tool. Especially those with prior knowledge of some of the most appropriate phrases and expressions, use of this innovative e-book will mean that you will very quickly surge ahead in expanding your range and fluency and, with the help of its user-friendly layout, identify the exact English equivalent of Spanish expressions which you already use to great effect in your work. As a person of high standing in your company, you are probably required to make the most dynamic of impressions through presentations, speech-making and, of course, those all-important business dinners and more informal gatherings, where small talk takes on immense significance, filling the gaps between all the jargon. The book therefore acknowledges, what every self-respecting slick business operator knows, that etiquette and social pleasantries are also a high priority. 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 concept is that through this enriching journey of ever more sophisticated ways of putting your thoughts into English words, you will hone your skills to a superlative level. In the process, you'll actually improve your whole approach to doing business, as you acquire a more global perspective from intimate contact with the language and the culture of its people, inherent in its wealth of idioms. 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 humor. 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. Dr. Skourtis and his team have left no stone unturned in their quest to preempt all your possible needs and they have come up with a truly unprecedented initiative. This is a Spanish to English/ English to Spanish guide that speaks in an authentic voice, one that you will encounter out there in the real world where business is enacted on a day to day basis. Its writers and contributors know what they are talking about. Everything that is included in the book, they've been there, they've done that! This book reflects real life. It is about getting results and, following the example of its creators, consigning all doubts to the waste paper basket. As a final thought, there can be no better analogy for this book than that of a guardian angel ready to conduct you through the cut-throat world of business, whose sole aim is to empower you to make clear and confident contributions in all your business dealings and sustain your creativity, success and reputation. 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.
