Topic units focus on current business issues and everyday skills around three areas: work issues, such as stress and time management; travel and communication (with particular emphasis on the internet and IT); and company life, focusing on tenses (enabling learners to discuss routines, past experiences and future plans in relation to their work/company).

Skills units focus on acquiring communication strategies for a variety of work-related and social contexts. Functional language is presented and practiced through dialogs. There is lexical input but no grammar focus in these units.
