Business English Expressions – Use These at Work!

Business English Expressions – Use These at Work!


what’s up my Bringlese family
welcome back to the newest Bringlese video, a channel where you can learn
English. Now as you guys have probably realized I’m a chill guy I’m laid-back
I’m not formal I’m kind of like younger and I’m more into like the slang side of
things rather than the serious side of things so I don’t really talk too much
about formalities in English and actually I would argue that English is
not really a formal language we have no formal way to address people, you take a
language like Italian where you dare del lei to people or Japanese where
there’s like so many levels of formality, in English we really just don’t have
that but that being said, yes, in certain contexts you should be a bit more formal
specifically when you are working so that’s why I decided to think of the
most useful business English expressions so that if you work in an English
context you could use these expressions to your advantage. So let’s start, the
first expression which is also probably the most common and probably something
you will also hear as a customer if you go to America or something is “how may I
help you?” come ti posso aiutare, how
may I help you if you are working with someone and they come to you and you
don’t know why they’re here you can say how may I help you. The second expression which is very similar to what we just learned is “is
there anything I can do for you?” if someone’s looking for help you should
say is there anything I can do for you how may I help you
is there anything I can do for you another expression maybe one you
could use in an email is “please let me know if you need
anything” of course please is a nicer way to ask someone to do something and now
the sun is shining right in my face please let me know if you need anything
maybe I’m talking to my boss I just finished this please let me know if you
need anything else when if someone asks you to do something a great answer could
be I’d be happy to I’d be happy to or if you want
to put what you’re doing I’d be happy to finish this for you I’d be happy to do
that for you I’d be happy to volunteer another useful one you could use in an
email is feel free to contact me anytime so if you’re closing some discussion and
you want to keep in touch you could say feel free to contact me anytime and then
once the business is truly done a phrase you could use is it’s been a pleasure
doing business with you it has been a pleasure doing business with you and you
know what it’s been a pleasure doing business with you thank you if you are
the boss or you’re the one asking someone to do something for you you
could say I’d appreciate if you could and then the thing I’d appreciate if you
could finish this by tomorrow I’d appreciate if you could organize these
files for me I’d appreciate if you could did I did it
and my last expression is “please finish this at your earliest convenience”
if you’re telling someone to do something you can tell them please
finish this or whatever it is please finish that paper at your earliest
convenience whenever it’s convenient for you please finish this so I hope that if
you work in some English context or if you’re dealing with customers or if you
are the customer and you want to be more formal in a business setting these
expressions should come in handy. I hope you guys enjoyed that, that’s it for now
I’ll be back soon, hope you enjoyed the video, peace!

  1. Thank you so much Brian, I'm currently studying for a Bachelor Degree in Business and Management and this is so helpful to improve my english😁

  2. Mentre noi perdiamo tempo in cose come "la presente per richiedere", gli anglo-americani se la cavano con un po' di gentilezza e pensano a fare affari, non la fuffa! Sarà anche per questo che sono i più ricchi del mondo!
