One of the most taken English courses when one is going to languages schools is the Business English. For a brief discussion of what this particular course is all about, it’s usually taken by adults and professionals whose career or interests lies in the business field. Learners in this course will be learning English vocabulary, terms, and usage that relates to their field. They will even be taught how to make business letters, discuss in conference meetings, and so forth. This course is essentially important because those people relative to this field will highly require the English that they need.


And so, for starters like you, perhaps you’d like to know a few terms and phrases that language schools will include during the learning process. Here is a writing composition taken from an English learning site to which it provides the terms in an informative manner. Let’s start our basic learning:


If you live for any period of time in the UK, you’ll probably want to open a bank account. There are two main types of accounts: a current account and a savings account.


You can use a current account for your day-to-day banking needs. Your bank might give you a cheque book, which allows you to write cheques to pay for goods and services. You’ll probably also have a bank card which allows you to withdraw cash from cash machines (also known as ATM or “hole in the wall” machines) and to pay for goods in shops. You get a secret pin number (personal identification number) that you use when you withdraw cash.


If you receive a cheque, you can pay it in or deposit it at your bank. You can also pay in cash (money). If you want to convert your check into cash, you can cash the check. Some companies can also pay money into your account via a direct bank transfer.


A savings account should pay you interest. Most banks give you a different rate of interest depending on how much you are saving, and how much notice you give before withdrawing money.


In the UK, people traditionally use banks for a range of services. As well as an overdraft facility (where you borrow money from the bank), people also get a mortgage (loan to buy a house), personal loan, and insurance from their banks. High street banks (the sort of banks which you can find on any high street) are also good places to change money.


Many banks now offer telephone banking and internet banking. This means that you can manage your finances without going to the local branch (office) of your bank.


Yes, most of the terms above are easy to understand. But with your comprehensive learning when you’ll be learning English in England perhaps as you take this business English course, you will understand more these terms and its role in the business.


We hope the emphasized business vocabulary above gives you a quick thought of what Business English is all about.
