Looking for a good course book


Looking for a good course book
Hi dear esl mates
Am looking for a good course book to teach English communication.
I got a group of a company who seeks to improve their communication skills in English. They always go on business trips, so they want to arm up with good English. Online books, worksheets, sites or any thing is good to me.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.

As I understand they are adults, so you might consider New Inside Out by Macmillan, it �s very communicative as for a general English coursebook with anecdotes section, which gets the students talking about what they �ve learned. My experience is that the book is better at lower levels (beginner, elementary, pre-inter and intermediate) and not that good at upper ones (unnecessary complex grammar). Has extra resources in the Teacher �s Book and a designated dvd and accompanying workbook to it. If you don �t decide to adopt it, the anecdotes themselves are worth trying. BTW I �m not a Macmillan representative ;-)

good luck!
