Business Issues, the IATEFL BESIG publication, has three issues a year – in spring, summer and autumn. The publication is written by and for our members and its range of articles and features serve the needs and interests of business English teachers around the world. It is full of teaching tips, book reviews, event reports and much, much more.

The publication can be enjoyed by members in hard-copy (sent by post) or in a digital version here on our website.

Older issues are available only to members in our members-only section. Over 100 great reasons to join IATEFL BESIG.
