With the increase in trade relations between companies from all over the globe, the English language has rapidly become a common language of communication during business meets conferences, presentation, etc. This is not only for companies in English speaking countries, but English has also become popular for companies from countries having English as their second language. This increasing demand for English in every business sector requires more institutes providing English language training specialized for business. Alliance Computing Solutions in Manhattan, provide several English language courses for individuals looking to improve their English communication and written skills.
In today’s fast-moving world, business English is what one should know in order to communicate, join and compete in the international market. Hence, the importance of good English in business can’t be undervalued in the age of the new global business market.
If you want to improve your business communication skills, consider including these tips into your learning plan:
Set specific goals – Learning could be more effective if done by setting specific goals, which are challenging as well as achievable. Don’t have an open-ended timeline, push to your limit and test yourself with clear deadlines. For an instance, a goal like “I want to deliver a presentation in English,” is not so encouraging. Instead say, “I want to deliver a ten-minute English presentation on sales goals, without using a PowerPoint, by the end of this month.
Create habits to learn English – Create habits or find ways that help you in learning English. Regular practice builds momentum and makes you habitual of learning. For example, make an effort to read at least on business a day, pen down your weekly team updates in English, or give a presentation in English one day a week.
Believe in yourself – Often people who believe in their own self-efficacy are more willing and inspired to take on challenging tasks. Try to revise your goals and make them easier at the beginning or more achievable until you start to believe you can achieve it.
Make your learning experience enjoyable – Learners having more positive attitudes towards their leanings make more efforts and learn more as compared to people with negative attitudes. Try to make your English learning more enjoyable, creative such as by reading the English version of your favorite novel or book.
Use genuine English materials – Textbooks and practice tests come with limitations such as time and place. But genuine materials such as podcasts, TV shows, and TED talks, give an exposure to native English. They prepare you to face real-life situations and are more interesting as compared to the strictly educational materials. Find out good writing, listen to the great speakers, and try to imitate the style, format, pattern, and language of your idol.
