Business English

In the business world, there are standards for written English just as there are in the classroom. If you are applying for a job, your resume and application should have certain qualities. If you are writing a memo to the staff, it should be formatted properly. To understand the use of written English in the business world, refer to some of our files below.

Work-Related Letters

Most business letters must include a return address (letterhead or your name and address), date, an inside address (receiver's name and address), a salutation, body paragraphs, and a closing. However, there are several ways to format this information. For example, return addresses can be centered or begin at the left margin or begin at the horizontal center of the page.
