Publisher's Summary

This book sheds light on the importance of language skills and elucidates the benefits of enhancing language skills. Moreover, it also explains how improving your language skills will strengthen your communication skills and persuasiveness. The eminent importance of building language skills as an indispensable component of cultural training programs is often overlooked.

Language skills are critical to hone for effective communication skills of which employees who are slated to be transferred to the company’s overseas division should competently master. The importance of knowing multiple languages and understanding cultural nuances goes beyond being able to attain more success in an international corporate environment. The benefits of honing language skills are multitudinous and can be highly advantageous for the individual to eminently enhance.

“Language not only enhances the capability to understand other cultures but also the ability to understand, speak, read, and write in world languages, in addition to English, is critical to success in business, research, and international relations. Moreover, foreign languages are the most critical communication tools we have to develop relationships across cultures and solve complex cross-border challenges - both at home and overseas. In a business setting, communicating in the first language of the client results in more effective business. 

Language training renders employees more confident when working with teams, partners, and vendors. Beyond language acquisition being a bridge into other cultures, new empirical evidence suggests that language learning also encourages the development of empathy and effective interpretive skills. Language learning is only going to grow in importance as globalization makes the world more and more interconnected, and 71 percent of business leaders are currently planning to grow in markets in which English is not spoken.” (“25 Reasons Why”, 2017).
