There's a book called, "Business Class" by Longman, which is interesting, and full of stuff. Don't bother with the tape. It's all British.

The book costs 30,000 won, but has so much more than other books. It's for high level students, though. Bought it at COEX.

You might also throw in some business slang/idioms from "The Slangman" series, or "Idioms for Everyday Use" by Broukal.

I believe it's basically the same book, but with a more British bent.

The "Better-English" website has a fair bit on business English.

The thread is old I know, but for posterity's sake, Business Explorer is a pretty good book for a student who is already in business and wants to learn practical English and cultural differences. It's focus is listening/speaking, but as of today the cd is hard to get. Seems like no one is keeping it on hand and there's a 4-8 day (or week, idk cuz idk Korean) shipping for it. The cassette, however, is only ₩5000, while the cd is over ₩30,000.

When I was looking for a Business English book it felt like a loose/loose situation. Most seemed to be primarily focused on grammar & vocabulary lessons, and lacked the business applications I wanted - Resume, Job Descriptions, Interview Skills. The best book I found was New International Business English by Cambridge Press. However, it still wasn't spectacular so I had to create half of the lessons on my own. Good Luck!
