What is Business English?
Business English is a specialised area of English relating to the language
used in business. Every year more and more people are studying it to improve
their chances of finding a job at home, career prospects and to be able to work
in English speaking countries.
Why should you study Business English?
1. To improve your job prospects
English is the universal language of business, trade, politics and international law.
The majority are hoping to improve their job prospects at home.
Many companies like their staff to improve their English skills
and send them to study at language schools.
2. To work abroad
The second great reason to study English with Business is for living abroad in an English speaking
country such as the UK, United States, Canada and Australia.
There are many jobs that you can start after you have studied English to Advanced or Upper-Intermediate level.
You don’t need to have studied Business English to work in a bar or restaurant,
for example! However, for many office-based jobs, it is best to be able to understand English business terms
and to have carried out business tasks before in English, such as presenting and writing.
While business English studies are often challenging, all of the presentations,
listening, writing, and reading exercises students do in class help them
to gain the confidence they need to work in today’s fast-paced business world.
Not only do students learn valuable language skills, but they also develop an understanding
of how to work in complicated business environments.
