Learning languages for business. What’s the point?


Many businesses believe or assume that their foreign counterparts will use English to communicate so what would be the purpose of learning a foreign language?

We believe it is not only good for business to learn a foreign language but the advantages awarded are more than just improving communication.

It benefits the economy

Although English has been the common language for businesses in the past, the changing business market may dictate that English may not be enough in the future.

Only 6% of the worlds population speaks English and 75% of the worlds population can not speak any English.

It gives access to culture

Language gives us access to culture in a way nothing else can, unlocking the door to knowledge and understanding of other cultures.

Learning a language is not only learning the alphabet, the meaning, the grammar rules and the arrangement of words, but it is also learning the behavior of the society and its cultural customs.

Building strong business relationships

If you speak a second language you will:

– Be more successful in the global economy
– Build better relationships at home and abroad
– Be able to compete with your peers

Being able to speak a second or third language transcends spoken dialogue. 

Speaking to someone in his or her own language helps break down barriers and allows everyone to feel more comfortable and confident.
