Business English best location to learn is London for many. Why?

Many people whose first language is not English think they can get by in the business environment of the English speaking world with a working knowledge of general English. However, the subtle elements of quality and properly constructed written letters communication are vital to establishing credibility in a professional environment.
On the job experience in an English speaking environment may improve your Business English, but it will not ensure that you have an all-round knowledge of the technicalities surrounding Business English.

Normal English Language schools may not be suitable for this as you probably want a faster track to improve in this skill.
It is therefore worth considering colleges which specialise in Business Training which also offer English for Business Courses. The advantage of this is that you receive the training from a commercial perspective as opposed to a purely academic, language based angle. Many of these Business English schools are in London.

A good business school for this type of training will offer courses in things like administration, law , finance and office procedural functions such as office administration, secretarial procedure etc.

If you are an international student it is ideal to consider courses in London, as this way you can immerse yourself in the hubbub of daily routine in one of the busiest and most vibrant cities on Earth.
Learning Business English in London can set you apart in your later career as you will assimilate the best accent for the use of English, whereas quite commonly provincial schools will leave you with a regional accent which may not be the best for international commerce.

Whilst formerly written business letters are now used less commonly, it is good to be able to construct quality letters in Business English. Using this base you will be able to generate quality e-mails and other e-communications with confidence.
So when you are looking for the right source for your Business English courses in London, you should make sure that the provider is not a standalone English teaching unit but one with a broader commercial perspective.

For Business English courses in London be careful with providers in the Oxford Street area, as there are a few fairly poor quality providers who trade on their central location for walk in trade as opposed to the quality of their tuition; these are easy to spot as they tend only to specialise in English without other commercial subjects. Of course not all providers in that area are of poor quality.
