What exactly is Business English?

There is much more to speaking a second language than just the grammar rules and vocabulary. It is imperative to be aware that language is used differently depending on the context. For example, you may speak to your boss differently than to your mother. Essentially, Business English is a specific type of English that is used in a variety of different business contexts. For instance, this area of language is commonly used by professionals working in finance, trade, commerce and in many other international office environments. 

Business English encompasses  vocabulary that is necessary when in a workplace. Users of this type of English tend to expect clarity, structure and proper terminology. Therefore, this area of language is usually very high in formality and demands clear articulation.

So why study Business English?

Studying Business English will broaden your career prospects. It will introduce new opportunities to earn employment in English speaking countries, but to also work in international organisations.  

In short, great benefits will unravel when you embark on improving your Business English skills. In business, it is crucial that nothing is left to interpretation. By pursuing such a course, you will be able to communicate effectively and confidently in everyday work scenarios, both orally and in writing.
