Business vocabulary practice

Business English is really very similar to general English taught in schools – the one big difference is vocabulary. Often there are special words and phrases related to a particular business that you won’t find anywhere else. Different words can convey different tone and style, so one of the best ways to build your vocabulary is to find new words from a context so you know if they belong in informal emails or critical business documents. Guessing the meaning of a word from the context you find it in is a great skill to develop as it will make your reading easier, although you should use a dictionary too! The most successful word-learners often keep a notebook or vocabulary journal and record new words as they find them. Let’s see how much business vocabulary you already know.
