English has become the language of international business, and more and more, business has become international. This means that to compete you need to be able to speak, understand, read and write English. Learning English will give you the opportunity to do business all over the world. It is another asset that will make a more valued employee.
English will be a valuable tool for you. Whatever your career field, there are basics as well as specific vocabulary that you need to learn. If you tell your school your needs, they should be able to design a learning program just for you. English will help you network, help you learn to make reports and presentations, and help you stay in touch with colleagues, and the latest developments in your field.
If you are looking for a job, a resume in English may help you get “your foot in the door.” A good school should be able to help you prepare a good-looking resume, but that is only the beginning. You still need to do well in the interview. Again, the school should provide you with the opportunity to practice, and correct your errors.
Whether you are just beginning or moving up, English skills will be of great value to you in your business career. Your English school is your valuable partner in your effort. Take the lead and tell them your goals. Work with them to formulate a study plan. Then, practice, practice, practice.
