Why is it important to learn business English language if you are setting up a project, whether social or commercially, in France or in a non-native English country?

English is often considered the international language of business, which is increasingly true as international trade expands every day, bringing new countries in contact. As a matter of facts, to make your business more successful, it is good to commercialise your products or services on an international level. In this case, it is very likely that you will have to deal with clients who are from foreign countries who will probably speak a different language that you do not know. In order to make your negotiation effective, it is definitely important to learn to communicate in English.

Why English? Because it has been spread around the world during the expansion of British Empire between the 16th century and the 18th century. During this time, British traders, sailors, soldiers, pilgrims and missionaries reached all the corners of the globe and sometimes settled down. In the countries where the the Britons formed large colonies, such as Australia, Canada and United States, the cultures and languages present before (such as Dutch, Portuguese…) were almost completely replaced by the English ones. In other countries, as India and Africa, where the main goal was to establish trade relations, English was the language used mainly for business purposes. These countries, even after their independence, when they became multilingual, needed a common language for the communication between the different ethnic communities, which was always English. In other words, it is because of the British Empire’s colonization that English became the most spoken language of the globe.

Today, more than 350 million of people speak English as a first language and more than 430 million as a second language, globally.

How do I learn Business English?

Always keep in mind that the vocabulary used in business English is different from the everyday vocabulary. You can find several cheap tools on Internet that can help you with learning business English. Our suggestion is to not only learn the vocabulary but also to read articles or watch videos in English that talk about business. This will help you to understand in which contexts you can use the different words. The volunteers of the project YERRF have also worked on a business glossary that you can use to learn the words. It contains business vocabulary in English with the explanation of the meaning and the link to the French translation.
