  • Hi everyone, Niharika here and welcome back to a new lesson. In today’s lesson we are


  • gonna look at some Business writing Tips. So this lesson is specifically for the people,


  • who belong to the corporate world. Now many a times we listen to people that who belong


  • to corporate world, it’s very important for them to write intelligently. Business


  • writing should be clear, should be concise and should be formal. So how do we do that?


  • There are certain tips that I have for you that would help you to write intelligently


  • and of course to write in a very formal manner.


  • So let’s have a look at these points. The


  • very first thing that you need to keep in mind is that you need to avoid jokes and cliché.


  • What is a cliché? For the people who don’t know, cliché is a phrase which is over used,


  • which is used several times and it has totally lost its meaning now, because it’s over


  • used, it has lost its originality, so that’s a cliché. So when you are writing in a very


  • formal manner. You are writing to your colleagues, youre writing to your boss or to your clients;


  • please do not add jokes or cliché. Its okay when youre writing to your friends and


  • family, but when it comes to formal writing, that’s a complete no no.So no jokes, no


  • cliché. Cliché like think out of the box or move the needle, Oh! Come on these phrases

    「Cliché 」就像

  • have been used several times and it makes no sense to people anymore, so do not use


  • cliché. The second point that you need to keep in mind is curb your enthusiasm. This


  • tip is perfect for the people who are over enthusiastic. Well, kind of even I am. I am


  • very friendly, I am always enthusiastic. So we need to curb our enthusiasm when it comes


  • to business writing. You cannot add too many exclamation marks, we tend to do that,specially


  • when we are writing on Facebook or we are texting our friends, we end up using too many

    當我們正在 Facebook上發文或是和朋友傳簡訊,我們都會使用太多

  • exclamation marks. So please don’t do that when you are writing to your clients or when


  • you are writing to corporate people, do not do that. Also do not add smileys. That’s


  • not a cute smiley right? Anyway please do not add smileys in your emails or in your


  • presentations. It doesn’t look professional, so you need to curb your enthusiasm. Also


  • you know when you are ending your business email, rather than writing lots of love, don’t


  • do that, you need to write yours faithfully or best regards. Please don’t end the email

    不要這麼做,你可以寫上「 yours faithfully」或是「best regards」。拜託不要用

  • by smileys, by kisses or xoxo, don’t do that. The third point, avoid passive writing.


  • Now here when I say avoid passive writing, it definitely means that you need to write


  • actively. Which means you need to use active writing? For example, the instructions will


  • be given to you by the director of the company, now that’s passive. You need to be direct


  • and clear, so that people can read quickly. So the structure of your sentence should be,


  • the subject plus the verb and then followed by the object. So the director will give you


  • the instructions, that’s how your sentence structure should be. So that’s active writing.


  • Don’t get into passive writing, it just doesn’t make sense for no reason you are


  • just exaggerating the material. So you don’t have to do that. The next point, keep a check


  • on grammar and spelling errors. Yes we belong to the social world, we are so much into Facebooking

    文法或者拼音的錯誤。是的,我們屬於社交世界裡的人,我們很喜歡用 Facebook

  • and we are so much on twitter, that our spellings and our grammar has totally gone hey wire.

    還有 twitter,我們的文法和拼慢慢的已經沒有限制了。

  • We try to contract most of the words and at times we use Lol’s and Omg’s. Do not use

    我們試著縮短大部份的字,使用不少 Lol 和 Omg。不要用這些字

  • that when it comes to business writing. It doesn’t look professional. Please do a spell


  • check and grammar check when you are doing a presentation or when youre writing business


  • emails. And then the last point that I really need to tell you guys is that, do not use


  • slang terms or offensive words. Yes we do have a lot of lessons you know using different


  • slang words, but this doesn’t mean that I encourage you to use slang terms in the


  • corporate world. Doesn’t sound professional, doesn’t look professional. Nobody’s gonna


  • appreciate it, so words like lets hang on and lets catch up, doesn’t look professional.

    因為你這樣用欣賞你的。像「hang on 」還有 「lets catch up」看起來一點都不專業。

  • So do not use slang terms and offensive words, Oh! No that’s a complete no no. We do not


  • use offensive words when we are talking to our clients or our bosses or our colleagues.


  • So keep these points in mind and be clear, be concise and of course write formally when


  • it comes to business writing. I’ll be back with a new lesson. If you have any questions,


  • do write into us and I’ll try to answer it back. I’ll be back with a new lesson.


  • Till then you take care.
