Hi there and welcome back to another episode of The Art of Business English. This is Andrew Ambrosius here for another interesting and useful lesson. Today I really want to share some tips with you on how you can improve your international business communication.


Are you the type of person who has to attend meetings with lots of people from different countries? Do you have to use English as your common language? Do you often find yourself talking to non-natives in English? If this sounds like you then today, you are going to love my tips.


Did you know that most conversations in business English situations today occur between non-natives? That’s right, most international groups are using English as the common language, yet most of them are non-native English speakers.


So, how does this affect me?


Well, if you’re a non-native speaker and you find yourself talking to other non-native speakers then you should find it easier to communicate. If you are talking to native speakers of English, then you may find it more difficult.


In this episode we are going to look at what you can do to help make yourself better understood and also give you some tips on how you can make others, especially native people, communicate more clearly.


In this episode we are going to cover the following:


  1. How to promote better communication
  2. The importance of good pronunciation
  3. Why speaking fast can be a negative thing
  4. Using synonyms to simplify expressions
  5. Avoiding abbreviations
  6. How you can encourage native people to speak more clearly
  7. Some common vocabulary and expressions from this episode


So, let’s get started!
