Nowadays speaking English is a must if you want to get a job, and this is valid for almost any type of job in which you communicate with people, no matter if it's in an international company, or a local business. The thing is the English which they teach you at school, or the one you learnt from the movies, or the one you speak with your international friends, is not the kind of English you are expected to use at your job. Business environment requires business English.
Improve your English by taking it to the next level
Get a specific idea of what business English is, and how it is used at the workplace
It is not easy to master a language, but business English is not as complicated as it sounds. For example, you don't need all the tenses, you will only have to use the basic ones (present simple, past simple, present continuous, future, etc.). Once you get yourself familiar with the most commonly used words listed in this course, and understand in what situations you can use them, you will be ready to transfer your knowledge into 'real world' situations.
The great thing about general business English is that you can actually use it in a lot of situations, not just at work. You will need it when filling in documents, reading important information, buying something online from another country, or just about anywhere where formal English is used instead of informal.
