Effective Business English Communication
Business English Communication is a very big field and can be looked at from many angles. The main thing to bear in mind is that the aim is not necessarily or not only to be really fluent or to use beautiful and complex English words and grammar structures. That would be very good, but is not always necessary and could be a bad thing sometimes, for instance when your business partner doesn’t speak fluent English. The reason for learning Business English is so that you can communicate accurately and you can talk in English with people of different English language abilities. This means that you should be able to say what you want to say and be confident that both sides have understood clearly what needs to be done. This could be difficult even for English native speakers, and usually when there is a serious matter to be discussed, people tend to speak very plainly, using structures and verbs which cannot be misunderstood easily. Also, with globalisation, international trade and foreign clients, it really makes sense to speak English in a simple, accurate and clear way.
