Dealing With English Language Business Communication

All people are familiar with the universalizing of the English language. What not all people are familiar with, is the kind of English you should learn in order to communicate in the business world. English is English, some might be arguing, but we have American and Britain English and both are understandable and useful. However, is the American one that most travelers, businessman, and people is getting in touch with and learning it. Here we offer some useful phrases and idioms to talk about communication in the business field: get straight to the point = talk directly about something rather than going around the subject. "He got straight to the point in the meeting." beat around the bush = not talk directly about something. "Please don't beat around the bush." go round in circles = not get to the point or reach a conclusion. "We're going round in circles here. Perhaps we should go back to the beginning." kiss and tell = tell the newspapers about your relationship with someone famous. "This Sunday there's going to be a great kiss and tell about the new Prime Minister." set the record straight = say what really happened so that there are no misunderstandings. "He really set the record straight about what happened in the Board Meeting." give someone the low-down = give all the details, inside story or gossip. "Just as well she gave me the low-down on my new boss before I met him." stay in touch / contact = not lose contact with someone. "Please stay in touch after you leave the company."

Decoding Skills

Some help along the way with a short vowel, long vowel, and consonant. Thanks to Mary Kay Linge who in her Reading Tutor points:
1. When one vowel appears between two consonants, the vowel usually says its short sound. 2. If there is an e at the end of a word, the vowel sound is long and the e is not pronounced -it's silent. 3. A vowel before a doubled consonant says its short sound. 4. When two vowels appear together, we usually hear only the first vowel, and it says its long sound(or, "When two vowels go walking, the first does the talking") 5. When a word has only one vowel and it appears at the end of the word, it usually says its long sound. 6. When c or g comes immediately before a,o or u we say its hard sound. 7. When c or g comes immediately before e, i, o or y we say its soft sound. However, there are many exceptions to every one of the rules, and learning them will only come with time and reading experience. No wonder so many struggle!

Have you ever heard of Ghotit? This is a super-spell-checker, ideal for very beginning English Language Learners and ELL’s with learning disabilities (as well as native speakers with challenges).

It has the ability to help sleuth-out words that people are trying to spell — in a much more in depth way than most regular spell-checkers.

Worth to give it a try.
