Career Express is a two-level course specifically developed for students studying business English at a higher level.

The first thing that we have to say about Career Express is that it is written in American English and the recordings feature a nice variety of English accents: American, Canadian, Australian, Irish and more. Beyond that, Career Express covers the core areas of business and economics by focusing on issues which reflect the business world as a whole, such as globalization and the future of work. It concentrates on teaching specialist business language through reading and listening activities, while providing opportunities to use the new language in discussion, role plays and case studies.
