Getting Up To Speed with Business Phrases (1)


As most students know , business English is quite different from conversation English.  It's usually more formal and specific for office or business situations.
Generally the same words or phrases are used again and are often idiomatic.  Here are a few common ones:

「To bring someone up to speed」

This phrase is used to describe the action when someone is briefed on some situation that has already taken place so that he or she then has the same basic knowledge about that situation as do the other workers.

" Hiroshi, why don't you go to Charlie and he'll bring you up to speed on what we discussed at the last meeting."           (G.K)
