The Certificate in Business English Usage programme aims to help students become more accurate and fluent when communicating in English in the modern workplace. Its goal is to equip students with essential business grammar, vocabulary and all-round language skills, so that they become capable of communicating with native and non-native speakers of English in common business settings. By gaining a greater confidence and a better command of business English grammar, vocabulary, receptive and productive skills, students will be prepared to further develop a higher level of business English proficiency upon completion of the programme.

To speak and write natural English, the use of collocations plays an important part. A collocation refers to two or more words that often go together.
 

For example, we say 'fast food' instead of 'quick food' and 'quick shower' but not 'fast shower'.  Mastering collocations will make your language more natural and more easily understood and thus have alternative and richer ways of expressing yourself.
