Letter from the Business English Magazine Team
Welcome once more, dear Readers,
You hold in your hands another bumper edition of BEM, packed to the gills with interesting
articles, fab vocab and sage advice.
Never let it be said that BEM is not intrepid in its reporting. This month we boldly go where
few magazines have gone before, as we plunge into the controversy surrounding sex robots.
Jonathan Moore weighs up the pros and cons of these technological temptresses and
ponders what to do when the batteries run out mid-cuddle.
Equally tricky terrain is explored by Raymond Clarke, in our cover story, as he dishes the dirt
on the nasty trend for revenge porn, before dashing off to hurriedly delete the photos from
his mobile phone.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Sidor has been snorting cocoa, of all things, to see if it really perks you
up, or if all it does is leave you with a rather silly looking brown stain on your top lip.
Elsewhere, Jan Sandford examines Dieselgate, and how VW landed itself in the mire
by cheating emissions tests, and ends by revealing that they might not be the only motor
manufacturers who’ve been making mischief.
Of course, we’ve also got all the usual features you’ve come to expect from us, so as to help
you polish up your patter and broaden your repertoire, as well as a really rather swanky
little supplement to give your business presentations more pizazz, so what are you waiting
for? Dive on in and enjoy all that we have in store for you.
