Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra is a five-level English course for students who want to learn English and learn about business, and for business people who want to advance their careers.
It has been developed in association with the Financial Times, one of the leading sources of business information in the world. Financial Times material introduces students to topical business issues and builds the professional language and communication skills required for the modern world of business.
Financial Times articles and practice exercises help students develop English for business.
Topics such as buying and selling, mergers and acquisitions, people skills, marketing and human resources expose students to the practicalities of business.
Consultant case studies help students learn general business practices while improving their English.
The English that students learn is practical for both working in business and further study at university level. Interviews, case studies and Financial Times content bring the real world of business into the classroom and motivate students with an interest in business.
Extra builds on Market Leader 3rd Edition by providing new Business Skills lessons that offer the learner a task-based, integrated skills approach to the development of core business skills such as Presentations, Negotiations, Meetings and Small Talk.
These lessons appear at the end of every three units and incorporate performance review, suggestions for professional development and goal setting. They are based on the Global Scale of English Learning Objectives for Professional English. These objectives are signposted at the top of each new lesson in the Student’s Book and the carefully scaffolded activities are crafted around each objective, creating a clear sense of direction and progression in a learning environment where learners can reflect on their achievement at the end of the lesson.
