Speaking the Language You must have heard the expression, “speaking their language.” When teenagers complain that their parents do not understand them, they said the older generation does not “speak their language.” When factory union workers agitate against management, they are often reported to be “speaking in different languages.” Wouldn’t business be easier if you could always speak the language of the person you interact with? With expert corporate language training, you can.
So, what are the languages you should get trained on? Well, that entirely depends on your needs, especially the places where you do business and the people you do business with. For all practical purposes, English is the language of business, and hence, all executives should be proficient (if not fluent) in this language. Also, to add to that, if you are doing business in Chile or any place in South America, knowledge of Spanish is a must. Learning a language for business involves much more than memorizing some common expressions, such as greetings or appreciative remarks.
While it may take years to understand the subtle nuances of any language, with the proper language teaching guidance, enough can be learned in mere months to suffice for most business interactions. When you speak the client’s language, both literally and figuratively, you not only forge a personal bond but also show that you care. In other words, learning a language is a demonstration of dedication. Also, it helps you in difficult situations like contract negotiations where inability to understand a language can give the opposing party the upper hand. Thus, expertise in languages can make you an expert in business. Therefore, if you want to know where such expert English courses and Spanish courses are offered, you should certainly check out Executive English Solutions course offerings. We are confident you won’t be disappointed.
