The Importance of English Language Proficiency in Communicating
Have you ever been at a meeting with a native speaker as the presenter and you have no idea what all the jargon and abbreviations mean? Have you ever been the presenter and been unable to clarify a point the way you would like because the English phrase eluded you? These are common experiences for speakers of other languages who have to function in an English language business environment at a high level. We won’t even go into the amount of time it may take you to write a good email or the terror of taking a long-distance call in English with someone who has a strong accent.
In your daily work, you need to be able to communicate well. It’s obvious that to do your job well, you need to be able to fully understand departmental emails, telephone calls and the details of meetings, not to mention simple small talk around the office. It goes beyond those things and extends into areas such as soft skills as well. Soft skills such as teamwork, leadership, and conflict resolution require good communication, both written and spoken. A poorly worded email can lead to a missed deal or a misused expression during a meeting can lead to misunderstandings and potentially a tense situation. Having a good command of English for the workplace can help you to avoid pitfalls; more importantly, feeling comfortable writing and speaking English will give you a feeling of confidence on the job and enable to take charge of projects and teams.
How do I improve my English?
That’s a good question. Let’s be frank; it isn’t magic and anyone trying to sell you a magical technique that has you being fluent as a native speaker in a month is being misleading at best and dishonest at worst. It takes time and effort, but it is achievable with the right courses and the right attitude.
