In this issue we look at how to become a more confident public speaker; how to put together a CV that will impress prospective employers and direct you to a site where you can access the best business blogs.

Pronunciation

It may not seem like it, but pronunciation is very important if you want to make yourself understood. There are 26 letters in the English language, but 44 (yes 44!) sounds in Received Pronunciation (RP) to master.

Slang
Following on from last week’s blog on Proverbs, I thought I’d take a look at slang, as it’s another important part of the language used by English speakers on a daily basis.

Proverbs
Want to speak like a true Brit? Then learn our proverbs. We Brits love to use proverbs, as many as we can get our hands on usually. But, to the uninitiated learner of English, phrases such as ‘a leopard never changes its spots’, ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’ and ‘forewarned is forearmed’ can be confusing.

Know your Business!
Knowing about business is more than just understanding the English used. You also have to know how the world of business works, including all the latest trends. So, how do you do this?
