There was brilliant news last Friday from the BESIG (Business English Special Interest Group) Conference in Stuttgart, with the Collins Business English: Listening app winning the prestigious David Riley Award for Innovation in Business English and ESP.
The award was received by author Ian Badger, Publishing Manager Celia Wigley and ELT Marketing Executive Eva Schmidt in front of 250 of the 500 conference delegates. In his acceptance speech Ian Badger thanked Collins Senior Editor Nikki McMullan, the Collins team as well as the app developers at Red River Press for their support.
The Collins app was up against 12 other innovative Business English products. The judges commented that it was a difficult decision, but that Ian Badger’s innovative use of authentic recordings as well as the app’s smart use of mobile technology meant that it came out on top.
The Collins Business English: Listening app is available for a promotional price of £3.99 (-60%) until 30 November 2012. For more information or to buy the award-winning app for your iPad, click here.
