The 21st century has enabled booming international trade and business like never before. And English is the lingua franca for its communication to keep global commerce in speed. This has led to the development of Business English, which the world is scurrying to catch up to. China is at the forefront! But that road, for now, is paved with many lingual obstacles.
The challenges of Business English in the Chinese context
Though China is catching up with ESP (English for Specific Purposes) in a big way, learners face big challenges in learning the nuances of English due to the vast differences in the construct of the two languages. Let’s look:
- The academic level language lessons only cover basic conversational English. It doesn’t cover advanced English writing in-depth.
- Graduates from the best of schools and universities consider Business English writing to be the most difficult course in the program.
- Lack of language proficiency makes it difficult to put across thoughts and ideas sufficiently.
- Improper use of grammar can distort the meaning of the message you’re trying to send across to your overseas clients or partners.
Written communication is important
Business documents can make or break important deals. These days, a lot of commercial communication happens over the internet. As meeting associates face-to-face can be time and cost-intensive, sending across a smartly worded letter is more effective. That’s how most business deals get sealed through emails, telephones or video conferences. This makes the written word highly valuable for all involved parties.
A well-written business letter conveys trust, interest, and assurance of high-quality. Whereas a poorly written piece shows a lack of due diligence, interest, and weak preparedness.
