Summary

English That Works presents a readable, conversational approach to business writing. The Second Edition includes updated, in-text examples, plus supplemental exercises following every new skill so students can immediately apply what they learn. The end-of-chapter exercises provide a cumulative review to topics, maintaining continuous reinforcement of skills.

The non-traditional, four-part organization of the text begins with Sentence Fundamentals (I), then goes through Punctuation (II), and Spelling and Style Points (III), and ends with Grammar (IV), but the flexibility of the text allows instructors to teach the parts in any order.

  • End-of-part review tests are included in the text.
  • The Instructor's Annotated Edition includes the answers to all exercises, worksheets, and test items.
