This book is designed to help Japanese EFL university students learn business vocabulary, improve their English reading comprehension and communication ability, as well as learn about the lives of important business leaders. Most of the profiled people are Japanese that students are at least a bit familiar with. All the materials have been piloted and then modified to best suit student needs.
Pre-reading activities include a vocabulary review, and scaffolding and schema building activities to activate students’ prior knowledge and prepare them for the readings. The pair-work dictation activities are warm-ups for the longer reading passage and use some of the selected vocabulary. The readings are not merely standard business profiles. Instead, the personality and philosophy of the business people are featured, with an emphasis on their uniqueness and business contributions. Reading comprehension questions include both global and detailed questions to review content and the main ideas. Every unit has a task, which is a communication activity that leads to deeper discussion of the ideas presented. There are three review units with quizzes on reading content as well as a vocabulary review of important economic terms.
