'What a wonderful resource for our social work students! I am truly impressed!'
- Dagmar Preiss-Allesch, Head of the International Office, EHB University Berlin

'People often ask "Why do we still need reference works, if everything can be looked up on the internet?"
This book is a good example that shows that not everything can be found on the internet.'
- Wolfgang Dohrmann,

'With this publication the helping professions have finally found a reliable source to support them in learning the English language and applying it in their professional practice.'
- Prof. Fritz Gründger, in: Soziale Arbeit, Deutsches Zentralinstitut für soziale Fragen (DZI) und Senatsverwaltung für Gesundheit und Soziales des Landes Berlin

'I would recommend this guide to any professional preparing to work in a health or social care setting in an English-speaking country.'

'Attempting to make accessible to the German reader the nuances and style of a language as delicate as English within care and therapeutic settings could be an almost impossible feat. I am truly amazed at the detail the authors have gone to in categorizing a range of settings, contexts and possible conversations...The presentation is very clear and easy to follow. A beautifully executed piece of work!'
- Susie Hayward, Psychotherapist und Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London
