Do you know the story about a man who applied for the position of an office boy in Microsoft, but the company refused to hire him because he did not have an e-mail address? As a result, with only $10 in the pocket he managed to become one of the biggest food retailers in the USA. What is the moral in this story? This $10 is your knowledge of English today.
You may not have an e-mail address, but you certainly must know English to succeed. It is hard to fully estimate the role of English nowadays. It unites the world and bridges the gaps between countries and individuals. Due to Internet and Hollywood, English has become extremely popular, which makes it possible to open a company in any sphere.
Because of business it has become extremely influential in world commerce and for individual companies.
1. Knowing English Creates Opportunities
I have a friend who is a very talented and successful businessman now and owns a company that provides technical support for Android devices. He has many friends all over the world and even a few branches all over the country. But a few years ago he became a “no-name” and was in a great depression. What happened in these years? – He learned fluent English.
The situation was that he was originally from China and came to the US to study, but could barely speak any English. Also he had great ideas about IT technologies and business, but they were useless, as he could not offer them to anyone. So, the only reasonable decision was to learn a new language. And it is not only about IT technologies. English opens you doors to any sphere of business and you can try yourself in fashion, engineering, physics, medicine or whatever.
According to language experts at SolidEssay, once you are able to communicate and cooperate with others, your potential increases enormously and many obstacles disappear. This concerns choices of the sphere where you want to work, or country, or even position. Do you like to travel and want to combine it with your work? You can choose a carrier in international public relations or tourism and voila – your dream job is ready.
2. Knowing English Expands Your Business
If you want to establish a new partnership with companies from another country or countries, it would take too much time to learn their languages. Instead, both of you may use English to cooperate, as it has become a universal ‘code’ of mutual understanding. The easiest and quickest way to the world trade markets is with the help of English and not only because all terms are created by this language (though it is an important reason).
All significant innovations are presented in English, and if you want to keep up with them, you should know this language. Why is it important? Because only by cooperation with others we can improve ourselves and by sharing our ideas we can learn something new. Unfortunately (or rather fortunately), the quickest way to do so is to communicate in English.
Of course, you may use translators, but the problem is to find a reliable and professional one and you will be taken more seriously if you can communicate freely yourself without any mediator.
3. Knowing English Makes You Pro
Finally, English helps a company to operate properly on its own. If you have workers from other countries, the best way to organize their work is to give instructions in English. With such a policy, you would attract more valuable professionals and eliminate any barriers for talented workers to join your team. English also helps to eliminate any kinds of discriminations or political misunderstandings. The use of one’s language within a company allows to optimize its work, create equality for people with different origins and unite them to pursue the same goal.
So, English allows you to run your business in any sphere, as well as establish new contacts with international partners for commerce or trade. It also helps to organize the company’s inner management in the most efficient way. And, moreover, it allows you to watch new Star Wars movies in original, enjoying all the beauty of the language and the genuineness of performance.
