Business English: A refined form of communication


English has been categorized into many divisions over time. We have General English, Academic English, Street English (informal), Business English( formal), English for Competitive exams etc. These are very broad terms used to differentiate between the styles of speaking or writing. The vocabulary and sentence structures are different in the different forms.

In today's discourse we shall discuss a very important aspect of the language - Business English!

What is Business English? To state it simply, Business English is a formal and refined form of English used in the corporate world in the global arena. In the corporate world, communication takes a very official form with a lot of words and phrases related to courtesy, ethics, law, technicalities, advanced sentence structures and formalities.

Why learn Business English? - Well, you do wish to prosper in your business and / or career, right? To get new clients and customers, you need to communicate with them in the way that pleases them. You should be in a position to understand your customers' communication very clearly without misunderstandings, right? Without learning this particular form of English you may not expect to be able to do so.
Furthermore, if you are working for any corporation that uses English as its medium of communication or if you wish to find a job in such a company, you are expected to know Business English well.

You might ask why we need to know Business English and why general English isn't enough..... Well, I'll give you an example. If you meet the CEO, would it really be proper to say 'Hi, how are you?' Dear me, NO! You have to learn to speak more formally and say 'Hello! How do you do?' That sounds more formal and courteous and pleasant. Would you tell your boss or customer 'What do you want from me?' Noooo..... lol . You should say 'How may I be of assistance / How may I help you? / What may I do for you today?'

Do you see the difference? Do you understand the importance of Business English?

Apart from regular conversations we also need to read and write corporate documents frequently and must make use of formal and professional vocabulary words and phrases and idioms. In Short, Business English is a highly specialized field of English communication which is indispensable in the present and will be indispensable in the future. Learn Business English and see the difference in your career and business. Cheers!

Hello There! I am Neil and I have been a corporate and general English trainer for over 9 years now with special focus on IELTS training too. I have done my PhD and I have an American TESOL certificate to boot along with a diploma in medical sciences. And I have taught students from many nations online for several years, and it has always been a great experience. :) I have extensive experiences in training people to be highly competent users of English in the 'native-way.' My lessons are very interactive! I am a very friendly, comfortable and funny teacher and I use effective, innovative and interesting ways to teach so that my students really learn a lot and also have a good time even when they are tired after a long day's work. My teaching methods involve listening, reading, speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary, writing and free talking and I often use pictures and funny video clips for descriptive purposes. Everything is aimed at giving my students maximum practice. My students have never scored less than 7 in IELTS so far and all of them are extremely satisfied with my classes. I DO NOT TEACH GRAMMAR and instead use natural acquisition of language through immersion into a total English environment. I always respect my students and expect the standard courtesies from them too. Let's learn with fun! Cheers! [NB: I can teach Bengali too] [PS- Check my book out at amazon :) https://www.amazon.com/dp/1549837362]
