Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this because I am teaching an ESL business class based on the case study method. While this book does contain some run-of-the-mill case studies there is absolutely no ESL component. It is written in standard, formal, textbook English which ESL learners will not be able to understand. Other than introducing some specialized vocabulary which native speakers would probably also need to have defined for them, this has no language component whatsoever other than being written in English. The author apparently taught business in Universities in Scandinavia; the level of education there is so high that students studying business in English are generally at a very advanced level of fluency. Thus, he has no actual ESL experience. Pedagogically speaking there is not a single element of Communicative Language Teaching, or any other recognizable ESL methodology. It is just a series of bland case study exercises written in standard English and presented in a slightly subpar but otherwise standard business text book format. This is useless as an ESL text and of only limited value as a business text. I only gave it one star because there is no way to submit a zero star review.
