All the tests are relevant to people using the language at work. They cover subjects such as descriptions of jobs, companies and products, travel, management and marketing, customer service, planning, reports, phone messages, business correspondence and presentations.

The tasks in the tests are practical ones, e.g. taking a phone message, checking a letter, giving a presentation, understanding an article, writing a report.
