Overview

Business English is a special purpose part of the English language. It is considered a specialty within the English language learning and teaching or a variant of international English. Many non-native English speakers study the subject with the goal of doing business with the English-speaking countries or with companies located outside the English-speaking world but which nevertheless apply English as a shared language.

Business English entails different things to different participants. For a group, it focuses on vocabulary and topics used in the realities of business. For others, it refers to the communication skills used in the workplace. In both of these cases, it can be also taught to native speakers of English
