Business English

Note: This is a new page and I’ll be adding more material here as I develop it. 

Business English gets a bad name in some circles because it’s associated with making our language “fancy” or “putting on airs”. Where  there is a certain amount of posing in business, that’s more a result of how people behave in their workplace and their business culture, rather than the language itself. So, to try and demystify some of the ideas around teaching business English, I thought I’d share some of my favorite worksheets here. 

To start, let’s answer a really basic, but important question; What is business English?

Topic

When we say "business English", we often just mean we are talking about work; what we do, where we work, how it's going, and the challenges we face.

Vocabulary

The words we use in the workspace depend a lot on our industry. Compare the terms used by doctors to those used by bankers for example.

Formality

Some languages are more clear about the difference between formal, and casual speech but levels of politeness definitely exists in English as well.

Teleconferences

This is a new set of worksheets I've developed and would love your feedback.

Other

Other topics I'm currently developing include Negotiations, and presentations. 

If you have a work-related theme you'd like to see developed here, get in touch!
