Financial English Course

If there is any language more international than English, then surely it is language of money! Whether you are book-keeping for a small company or liaising with European Regulators, financial English is bound to be a factor in your work, and the amount of business done in English is ever increasing. A correct and sophisticated grasp of financial English is essential if you want to see your career soar to new heights.

Is it ‘increased with 20%’ or ‘increased by 20%’? Do you know the difference between amortisation and depreciation? Is the correct phrase ‘Share prices recovered extremely slowly,’ or ‘Share prices recovered extremely slow.’? Small mistakes like this can really stand out in the financial environment.
