English is the most important language for doing business and commerce. If you know English, you can connect with a global market and open exciting doors to fresh opportunities, whether it be drawing up business contracts or expanding our networks on global forums like LinkedIn.
But engaging in formal business settings can seem daunting, even for native speakers themselves. We can feel intimidated by unfamiliar specialised language and sadly, this can mean we miss opportunities that could blow up our career or company.
Whether it is the warranty on your new watch or a few lines of a new EU Directive impacting the way you generate business, being able to understand legal English is essential. What’s great, is that learning this specific vernacular follows exactly the same principles as acquiring any other part of the language. It is a simple expansion of vocabulary and grammar, using listening, reading, writing and speaking skills interactively with others or your personal teacher.
The secret to success is consistency.
The one thing you can do right now to start mastering legal English is:
This is the key to a business’ growth and the same applies to language mastery. One of the first things we can do to develop our abilities in corporate environments is to recognise the possibilities we have to study, experience and engage with colleagues, clients and new networks. Meet ups, events and even the internet all offer exposure to specific subjects can be fantastic windows into a new, stimulating world where opportunities are abundant.
One of the most popular and simple ways to improve legal language skills is by listening to podcasts. There are scores of options out there, whether they are specifically focused on legal issues, or discussing current business and economic affairs. The beauty of a podcast is that you can listen anytime, anywhere.
And on that note, when we are relaxed and truly enjoy what we are doing, whether it is studying or socialising, that is when growth happens. Opening doors to new experiences as well as new language means that our lives grow and not just our company portfolio.
