BUSINESS ENGLISH – A NEW CONCEPT!

Nowadays, the phrase “English for Communication”, “General English” or “Academic English” has become familiar with English learners in Vietnam. On the other hand, the phrase “Business English” seems to remain a new concept.

So what is Business English?

The name is rather straight forward, Business English: the English used in Business; The English needed to solve business related works and to Vietnamese’s mind simply “English for white-collar workers”

What separate Business English from others?

Allow me to quote line from www.keyenglish.ro: “Business English is not just about using a second or foreign language; many of the skills used are also skills that are required to be learned by native-speakers.”

Other than using English to communicate fluently in a workplace environment, Business English required corporate, organization employees to use this second language in: answering the phone, writing and replying emails, presenting, discussing, adapting to urgent demands, etc. Will this be the main challenge for domestic businesses when joining the TPP?
