Business English is learning English for business or professional means. The subject is varied and can cover anything from interview practice and CV writing to industry-specific vocabulary. It focuses on the language that truly matters in business – sales, negotiations, presentations, and diplomatic English.
Any non-native English speaker who works. Although you may be fluent enough to speak with friends or go traveling, business English is a large step up. You not only need to be able to understand and speak in English, you’ll also need to pick up on what is not being said or to read between the lines. Most professionals will take a business English course to progress in their career, grow their business sales, or integrate into an English-speaking workplace.
Practice, practice, practice! Using English at work is a whole different story than being able to hold a conversation casually. It needs to be accurate, polite, and in tone with your company – whether that’s bubbly, serious, or salesy. To improve your English for work, learning through a business English course is the best route. Strategise with your teacher on your goals and timeline and you’ll get there! We promise!
Yes, English is the business language of the world. It’s often used as the lingua franca. All multinational companies use it as the common language and international growth of businesses means talking in English. 80% of computers are written in English. So, if you’re promoting your business online, your English needs to be up to scratch!
By having a good level of English, you’ll be able to:
Having good English skills opens a lot of doors for you! First and foremost, it’s an amazing skill to put on your CV. There are multinational companies globally that are now requiring English as a skill for all employees. Without English, these companies would be closed off for you.
You’ll also be able to make a lot of new connections globally through soft introductions and networking events. This will seriously help your career or even impress your boss!
If you are in sales and marketing (or any customer-facing department), English is becoming a must. Normally, only 7% of employees take on international clients due to their English skills. Guess what? You could be that 7% and see your commission grow!
Although hardcopy letters are a thing of the past, the western world still writes the address at the top right. Let’s not dwell on it too much, it’s just still a thing we do!
How you address it depends on if you know the reader or not. This is also the same for signing off. There are lots of different ways, but to stay safe, for the reader you do know open with “Hello name,/Dear name,” and for the reader, you don’t know open with “To the HR Department/ To XYZ Company”. Avoid using “to whom it may concern” or “Dear Sir/madam”. They’re in the past and it’s time to let go. In short, it’s safe to close with “Kind Regards”.
Keep the business letter to nice paragraphs. A whole bunch of writing without space can be tiring to read – even for a native English speaker! No need to use the dictionary throughout as you might use a slightly different meaning by choosing a smart-looking synonym.
Use our bot or our teachers to proofread. You can also get a colleague to proofread for you too. Even the best of us make mistakes.
A memo is a short note written as a reminder to the intended recipient. This is normally used internally as it is a bit informal. Examples could be sticky notes or notes on CRM systems. You can also use a memo as a note-to-self.
There are different levels of formality at work. You’ll have to take into account the size of the company and your relationship with the recipient. Smaller companies tend to be more informal as a rule of thumb. You should also take into account the subject of the email. If the subject is something you might need to refer back to in the future – for example, a project decision – it should be more formal than your daily back-and-forths.
Reading and writing emails can be tricky.
When writing emails internally in the workforce, writing shorthand is fine. Please be careful in the type of work you are in, but if colleague are writing to you with one word sentences, then why not follow the crowd. For instance, if you are approving something, instead of writing “I approve this.”, correct this to just “Approved.”.

Cornell Method of Taking Notes
Use our live chat! We’ll help you instantly. If you’re out of our timezone and need something faster, google is actually pretty good for helping with this. There is also thesaurus.com that’s excellent if you know a word similar but can’t think of the one you want.
You can learn English in lots of different ways for free! You can use free apps like Duolingo. You can also use Youtube. You can avail of our resources which are all free.
Although you can learn English for free, working with a teacher is the quickest way to become fluent in English and sound like a native speaker.
Podcasts are great as you can listen while out for a walk. Check out our blog on our top recommended podcasts. Watching movies or series that you know by heart in your own language is great too. If you’re like the rest of the world and have watched Friends hundreds of times, try watching it in English. Their accents are quite neutral and they talk slowly so it’s a good one for pronunciation. We love giving TedTalks out for assignments too as the topics are interesting and there are lots of them so this is great for working on your listening reactions.
No matter the media, always remember that repetition is vital.
It’s hard to expand your vocabulary without having a topic in mind. Instead of coming at this with “expand my vocabulary” as the goal, you should pick a topic to learn about and as a bonus pick up new words. This is a much better and more immersive way to learn English. Use the study method you prefer with this topic and go from there.
Always remember when you’re having a conversation with a native English speaker and come across a word you don’t know, ask them what it means! Most people in the world are friendly and willing to help. The best learners we’ve seen even carry a notebook around to write down their words of the day.
The best writing skill you can learn is that moment when you start thinking in English instead of translating in your brain. There’s no better feeling than having a dream in your second language – definitely a eureka moment! Once you start thinking in English, the emailing will start to flow better.
As a cheat, it’s always nice to have some canned responses ready to copy and paste that you use a lot. For example, “I’m the head of the department and am contacting you in regards to your query.” or “I look forward to hearing from you.”. Have these saved on a Word document and ready to go. You’ll definitely save some time!
Prepositions are quite hard. Like expanding your vocabulary, you can do it the hard way – memorize – or do it the fun way – immersive style. The faster way to learn English is to learn in phrases, rather than word for word. This is the new age way to learn and is much more effective. You’ll pick up the prepositions along the way by just speaking practice.
Confidence is a big one and something that we naturally focus on in lessons. Confidence means that you’ll be able to speak up in meetings, give presentations, and sell products. The best way to do this is speaking practice. We can all hide behind laptops and never gain confidence! Talk with your teacher and work on pronunciation. There are also lots of “Tinder”-style Apps to help you talk with strangers to improve. This will help you build the confidence to talk with people you know.
