This is a handbook consisting of five lessons with accompanying cassette tapes for Japanese businessmen with intermediate to advanced levels of proficiency in English. Each lesson and tape contains a narration, a dialogue and exercises which are designed to help master vocabulary and structures that may be encountered in interactions with people in the United States. The units are written to emphasize the importance of polite requests in dealing with employees of various types of businesses (hotels, restaurants, travel agencies, banks and airports), and to familiarize Japanese language learners with types of responses they may reasonably expect to hear in these kinds of interactions.
