More about Language Skills

Learn a foreign language, drive your career & create opportunities

Learn a foreign languageLanguage is the primary form of communication familiar to humans, and necessary for daily interaction. Language and our capability for complicated communication sets us apart from other species on this Earth.

Human language is highly complex and is based in a set of rules, where an infinite number of possible utterances from a finite number of elements. The word language can also be used to describe the set of rules that makes this possible, or the set of utterances that can be produced from those rules.

It has been argued that language is the element that makes us human. The argument goes that our capability for language is the reason we are where we are today. From this perspective, developing our language and communication skills is a means of enhancing our competitiveness in the job market.

Communication Skills & Presentation Skills

Communication Skills & Presentation SkillsImproving your ability to communicate better is vital in business and life in general.

Effective communication is of increasing importance for companies and specifically at business meetings, where conversations need particular care. Many problems organisations face are the direct result of people failing to communicate, or communicate effectively. Communication is the exchange and flow of information and ideas from one person to another; it is effective communication if the receiver correctly understands the information / idea that the sender intended to transmit.

To ensure you communicate efficiently and effectively, there are three primary considerations:

  • make your message understood
  • receive & understand the message as it was intended
  • exert some control over the flow of the communication

A course to improve communication skills will help you evaluate how effectively you communicate and help you identify areas to focus on for improvement.

Presentations are efficient and powerful ways of addressing an audience, expressing a point, or winning a sales deal. All areas of businesses use presentations and good presentation skills are an invaluable asset to any organisation. Effective presentation skills aid managers, help with leadership and enable people to develop professionally in their careers.

Benefits of taking a language course

Benefits of taking a language courseAnyone working in an organisation with offices abroad will benefit from brushing up on their language abilities or taking the time to learn a foreign language, as it can help secure a position abroad, aid your ability to lead disperse teams or improve career development options in general.

Before choosing a language course, determine your purpose for learning the language, whether it's for business, meetings, or travelling.

Consider where you’d best be suited to learn a language. Will your learning benefited from being out of the office and being surrounded by like-minded people in an open language course? Would it be more effective for a language trainer to come to your work place and run in-house training? Or would you best learn a language via a distance learning / online learning method in the comfort of your home?

Language courses and training existing in many forms, to suit all kinds of requirements including:

  • One on one language training
  • Group / team language courses
  • Public courses
  • Language skills for business
  • Language skills for pleasure / travel / family
  • Language skills for relocation
  • Writing, Speaking or Listening specific courses
