We live in a globalized world and in 2020 English remains THE international language for business communication.
Nevertheless countless professionals continue to fall well below par when it comes to their ability to professinally communicate in another language.
The result? Companies performing at reduced levels of productivity in international markets, cultural barriers within international trade, stunted growth and turnover.
FACT IS: our linguistic skills, or lack of them, dictate our capacity to trade.
