Business English

The difference between business English is often times only a difference in vocabulary,

both in written as well as orally speaking.

The vocabulary of Business English can be party compared to political or informative English.

Thus, it tends to be more formal in comparison to the vocabulary we use on an everyday basis.

'News' in general would be a good example.
