Master Business English with the Help of AI

This blog post refers to non-native English speakers who often find themselves at a loss for words for common business asks - for example, how to ask to reschedule a meeting - or feel anxious about whether their English is grammatically correct.

The Agony of Proper English

Trying to validate the grammar or syntax of a few sentences through Google Search is not only an almost impossible task but also a rather time-consuming activity. In today’s fast-paced business environment, spending time on non-productive tasks can leave professionals behind in their responsibilities and exponentially increase everyday stress.

Writing or validating proper English is the bread and butter of modern AI models such as ChatGPT. This is the perfect time to put linguistic anxieties to rest and drive all your efforts towards more productive tasks.


As of June 2024, the most popular AI solution remains OpenAI’s ChatGPT. The latest model, GPT4o, which is available to free-tier users, is a great option for proofreading tasks. Below, find how GPT4o scores against the competition in text evaluation tasks (source: OpenAI’s blog post for GPT4o).
