Finance 1 is suitable for intermediate students studying for a career in the financial industries. Finance 1 gives students the language, information, and skills they will need for a career in these industries, and the preparation required to pass the ICFE exam. The Reading Bank in the middle of the book provides practice in reading and vocabulary skills, using questions in a similar format to the Test of Reading in the ICFE. The Webquest in each unit is a short, practical internet-based task for students to do in class time, or longer more involved tasks to do outside the classroom. Webquest tasks can be linked to other sections in the unit, and range from a simple internet research project, to an instruction to interview someone in their native language, and then write up a summary in English. The ‘Professional Skills’ feature in each unit covers a range of skills, including making presentations and negotiating, and addresses subjects such as professional ethics in the financial industries. The course supports teachers in the vocational teaching situation, providing them with specialist background information for the industry.
