You may ask yourself, “What is the importance of Business English?”
In the 21st century, we live in a genuinely global society, in which we are able to communicate with people around the world. The spread of English as the language of international business has made it more important than ever for people working with colleagues and clients from other countries to understand each other, in order to form effective and productive working relationships.
Thus, to meet the demands of today’s employers, everyone from entry-level employees to senior managers must be able to use English for work. Effective internal and external communication is essential to the success of any business, but professionals who need to communicate with each other as non-native English speakers can greatly benefit from learning Business English.
In reality, there are probably more similarities than differences between Business English and general English. They both require the development of core skills in speaking, reading, writing and listening. It is essential to have a good basis of general English to be able to communicate effectively.
However, Business English courses focus on particular vocabulary, topics, and skills that are applicable to the workplace and enable you to communicate with more accuracy. For example:
With Business English you can improve your overall English language abilities while targeting areas that will help you achieve your overall work goals, such as securing new clients, building confidence in your role, seeking promotions, and building rapport with colleagues.
