Understanding Americans

Although in the UK we share a common language with America, there are many differences when it comes to dialogue and verbal expression. These differences in language are even more prevalent in business culture, where Americanisms and American expressions can be at times difficult to understand.

Fortunately the team over at Foothold America have put together some of the most common American business expressions and their definitions in a quick info-graphic, so don’t let the grass grow and make sure you can understand Americans on the office today (you’ll have to read below to find out what that means).
