In summary, Real Reading in English for Business and Management, provides a variety of reading activities for students of business and management who study English as a foreign/second language. Through interactive multimedia, the program provides an easy platform for such learners to develop a range of reading skills in a systematic way, and to apply these skills to a range of text types. Through a small sample of my students in the MBA program, we found they enjoyed reading the texts from a multimedia program, and were particularly positive about the reading skills activities in the program, although from time to time they reported the same problems and confusion we reported in the evaluation. My observation is that the program works best when it is used as supplementary reading material. Considering the low cost and unlimited installation, we would highly recommend it to all institutions running an MBA program to students who are not native English speakers.
