Languages

Apart from English (see below) languages is highest demand are German, French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian. Through our network we can cover any language required. English has been listed below separately as there are far many more business people around the world learning English (as the "international language of business") than there are English native speakers learning another language, or other people learning other languages. Consequently, there are far many more providers of TEFL (Teaching of English as a Foreign Language) than for all other languages put together.

"English" for English Native-Speakers

Ideally English-speakers should be learning other languages to the same degree of enthusiasm and investment as speakers of other languages are learning English. Unfortunately this is not the case. Most English speakers lack a committed interest in learning other languages and for the most part are somewhat oblivious to the notion that there are different ways of viewing the world (and different ways of doing business), which is what learning another language could help them capture.

If learning another language is not an option, we strongly suggest that English speakers operating internationally should at least learn to speak a "second English": - English for non native speakers spoken in a manner that they can comprehend. This includes elements like slower pace, avoiding slurring, idioms and phrasal verbs, using simple words and especially the art of meta-communication (communication about communication). Since language learning is rarely on the agenda of English-speaking businesses, an "English for English" component should always form part of any intercultural training in the English-speaking part of the world.
