Languages means Business
Why are languages so important for business?
We all know that English is the lingua franca for business. Most companies thus tend to view language learning as a cultural pursuit rather than a business skill in its own right.
But language skills are often needed in specific aspects of the business, as companies increasingly need competitive advantage to survive in a global economy.
The lack of language skills cannot only limit the growth of a business but it can damage it too.
The findings of the ELAN* study, commissioned in 2005 by the European Commission, show that 11% of companies have lost business contracts because of a lack of language skills.
Language training is therefore a worthwhile investment.
