Business English skills are essential for getting ahead at work. Improving your business English vocabulary and knowledge will help you work more effectively and open up new career opportunities.

Business English is normally seen as a specialism within teaching and learning English, and forms part of English for Specific Purposes. It is studied by many non-native English speakers who wish to do business with English-speaking countries—or with non-English-speaking countries using English as a lingua franca (by some estimates, at least 75% of all business communication worldwide is between non-native English speakers).

In general, Business English is a form of English specially suited to international trade, commerce and finance. As such, Business English is the kind of English typically used in, for example:

  • Business Meetings
  • Sales Presentations
  • Negotiations
  • Business Correspondence
  • Business Reports
  • Executive Summaries
