Business English: negotiation role play

Negotiating in English can be challenging. Role playing your negotiation in English before your meeting is the best way to get ready for it. It will allow you to work on different areas of the negotiation.

Preparing your selling points is definitely the first step to succeed in your negotiation. You should ask yourself key questions that will help you organize your ideas. What are my selling points? How can I argue against my meeting partner's arguments? How flexible am I? On what areas can I be more lenient? What should I ask in return? A negotiation in English is above all a negotiation.
