How is business English different?

For many learners, business English can sometimes feel like a totally different language to standard English. There are so many idioms and phrases that are specific to the world of work and if you don’t know them, you can feel lost and overwhelmed. Not only is there a whole new set of vocabulary to learn, we also have to think about the formality and tone of our words. We must consider the context we are in before making decisions on word choice and sentence structure. Getting the right tone is critically important in business communication and knowing how to write formally and informally will stand any learner in good stead.
