WAYS TO SAY IT IN BUSINESS ENGLISH
 
FOREWORD
 
I started compiling these expressions when a student asked me for a list of 
“phrases
 
to say” in different
business situations. He had gone through a fewEnglish courses and felt that teachers had always taught him the same
functions. “I‟ve
learnt how to ask someone to open a window several
times,” he comment
ed
, “but no one has told me
what to say when I have togive
 bad news.”
 250 Ways to Say It in Business English is for people who want a quick guide on what to say in common situations. Five examples have beenwritten for each function to give readers the opportunity to find the phrasethat suits their needs best.The last thirty-three examples refer exclusively to telephoning. Languagelearners might consider printing and keeping the list near the phone so theycan browse through it when they know an international call is coming.All in all, a choice of one thousand two hundred and fifty phrases that, Ihope, can help you speak business English more effectively.
