Conversational English, academic English, technical English, standard English, and global English: Which one of these is not part of business English? The answer is probably none. The essence of business English is the skill to communicate effectively and accurately with those who are in business with you.
Business English is all about recognizing the uniqueness of your audience, who can be your colleagues, bosses, collaborators, customers, and the public, and adjusting your message to the recipients. Conventional topics for Business English cover marketing, business strategy, leadership, human relations, cross-cultural communication, and industry. Skill development, making presentations, business writing, and providing job performance evaluations, can be part of the program.
For those professionals from other counties, the awareness of American business culture as well as the specific corporate culture of their work place helps alleviate unnecessary anxiety and promote healthy professional development.
