“In general, this is a great resource for establishing the conventions of workplace conversation. The lessons can be fun and engaging, and can be expanded in many ways. Having the CDs really helps, as there is a facility to have people at different levels in the same room – with some listening and some role playing, etc. I think the conversations have been very well researched, and the industry consultations have resulted in a very useful and comprehensive product. I will be fully recommending this to any organisation or workplace, and I am already making plans to incorporate this into our standard ESL delivery.” Chris Moore, Training Manager, On-Track, Eaglehawk
