If you have ever burnt the candle at both ends or faced a Hobson's choice then you will know that Business English and Legal English can be highly confusing when spoken by native speakers.


That's the main reason why Legal English UK asked our teachers to come up with a new pre-recorded course on The Idioms of Business English. Many students hear idioms or read them in The Financial Times or The Wall Street Journal and struggle to understand or use them appropriately and within the appropriate context.
