Many international students choose to study a Business English course as a way to improve their English language skills.
There are different types of English language courses that you can take in order to enhance your English skills. Business English is a specialised part of English that targets the language that is most commonly used in the world of business. Business English differs from General English in that it is specifically targeting corporate language rather than everyday, conversational English.
Studying Business teaches you the vocabulary that you would use in business and the working world. As well as learning corporate-speak, you also learn how to do business related tasks that would be the norm in general working settings. These include things like business writing and reports, how to deliver presentations, put forth opinions and conduct meetings.
Other aspects of learning Business English can include writing letters and emails, applying for roles and understanding job profiles. Some Business English courses can also prepare you for life in a corporate, office environment.
Students who are looking to study, and eventually work in, subjects such as finance, law, politics, marketing and trade, can find Business English useful to learn. You can usually find specialised Business English courses for your specific subject too if you want to study further once you have completed your Business English course.
English has developed to become the universal language for business around the world. English unites people and companies from different backgrounds, countries and languages and allows them to communicate in a clear and effective way. That’s why Business English is so important to study if you want to work in this sector. Having a good grasp of English that you can apply to business will be an attractive asset to employers.
