Business English/Getting More Practice

If you live in the United States, the UK, Canada, Australia or another English-speaking country it is easy for you to practice all of the time watching TV, going to the store, making new friends. If you do not live in an English-speaking area, it may be harder to get practice.

Several magazines are published internationally and will help you practice your reading and listening skills.

English2Go, published by Reader's Digest
Speak Up, published in Brazil and in Italy.
Hot English, this one is OK too
