This website is dedicated to learning Business English online.

Business English isn’t a new language – the same rules of grammar, spelling etc. apply, but in a business context. This is why there are also general English resources to be found here.

The website is organised onto resources and courses, with those further sub-divided by level. The level is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. I would suggest you take a look at this if it’s unfamiliar.

Furthermore, the language used to write about the resources and courses will reflect the language difficulty. By this, I mean that in the beginner areas, the language will be quite simple, scaling to the advanced sections, where the language used will be more complex.

Although this is a serious website, it doesn’t have to be dry and boring – it should also be entertaining. This is where the last section, fun stuff, comes in. This is a collection of language-related items that are intended to make you think and/or smile.

I hope you enjoy your time here and please do comment on what you see. If there’s anything in particular that you want to learn or see here, please let me know.

    This just proves that in the world of Niche marketing there is nothing that can’t be written about. I found this a great way to offer a profession to someone. Not only that it can be used to further your knowledge. Good thinking.

    Derek, that’s a very interesting niche you have discovered for yourself!

    At first I thought it’s a typo but then I read further and thought to myself, that’s clever…

    I considered becoming an English teacher a few years ago when I was travelling in Asia and it’s still something I’d like to do.

    But now I’m thinking it would be great to teach people how to learn effective business communication in English (what you are doing) because that would be more specific and perhaps even motivating to the students.

    I also want to learn other languages because it would be great to communicate in business with others who don’t speak English.

    So great idea, thanks a lot for broadening my mind 🙂

    • Hi Markus – thanks for your comments and kind words.
      I know a lot of people who combine teaching English with their love of travelling, so go for it. This also provides excellent opportunities for learning other languages.

  5. Derek, I really enjoyed your site and its content. I do a lot of business writing in my day job, and see a lot of folks could really benefit from your site.

    Nice job.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    Hi Derek. I think it is great that you created a website of this sort. It provides a platform for resource that could be used by people like me, with a first language other than English.

  7. I am a TEFL teacher and found this site so useful! Thank you so much. It’s so important to have excellent teaching resources for English. I’ll be back for more!
