Business writing is an important way to connect with customers and especially ESL business writing.
The international language is English, so if you want to do business internationally you’ll need to be able to communicate in English.
If you’ve a website and need to reach international customers you’ll need to do website writing but it’ll be ESL website writing for your business, or you might need to produce business reports in English.
If you’re worried or unsure of how to write well in English you just need to remember that you’re writing non-fiction material. And good non-fiction writing is clear and simple.Your main aim when doing business writing is to communicate with your readers; these could be visitors to your website or people within your own company. What they want is clear and concise English. They want to be able to understand what you’re telling them in the shortest amount of time possible.
Fiction writing is all about using language to impress your readers while non-fiction writing is all about using language to give your readers useful information.
The English you use still needs to be well written. Just because the information you’re writing about is more important than the language used, doesn’t mean that the language doesn’t need to be correct.
It’s just as important in ESL business writing that the English language is correct as it is in any other writing.
If your writing is full of grammatical errors it’ll distract your readers so they won’t remember what you were trying to tell them. This means that you need to keep on improving your vocabulary so that you’re able to write using the correct words.
You’ll also need to make sure that the ESL grammar you use is correct. If you’re writing using simple sentences and plain language then most of the grammar you use should be simple but you still need to make sure it’s correct.
Proofreading your writing is important no matter why you’re writing, but in business writing it’s even more important as your writing might be a big part of obtaining new customers for your business.
Producing well written professional looking business English will leave a good impression on whoever is reading your writing, either your customers or superiors.
