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.

- Speak Up, published in Brazil and in Italy.
- Hot English, this one is OK too
