Gardening Leave and other articles

The 'Business English' articles in the Financial Times Deutschland (FTD) are a very valuable resource for students at intermediate level and above. The topics are all very relevant and interesting, and new items of vocabulary are highlighted - just use your mouse to hold the cursor over the word and the German translation will appear.

The latest article has an interesting title - you've heard of maternity leave, and today it is very popular for men to take paternity leave, if you are ill you can take sick leave, but I'm sure you've never heard of 'gardening leave'!!
