How is having a good level of English an advantage in a professional context?
Increasing your language ability or even if you are just starting is a huge advantage in life and in work. Adding it to your resume will show employers that you are interested in other countries/ cultures and driven in acquiring new skills. It can be nothing but positive! Learning English also shows that you understand that most international business is conducted in English and you aspire to be part of that world, driven to succeed. It also shows confidence when you are having a discussion or giving a presentation in a language that isn’t your mother tongue. There really are no negatives to it!
Working for a company that deals with international suppliers and clients is a daily common experience in today’s world. Many companies outsource work to suppliers etc in other countries. Being able to communicate in English will make this process a lot smoother and limit any misunderstandings that may cause offense or a costly mistake to the company. You can start by learning the most frequently used expressions in business or the most common English acronyms.
Taking a course to study Business English is a positive approach to achieving more success in the business world.

Do I need to know my English level? Is it important?
Some people know what their level of English is and others usually guess. Knowing what level your language skills are at is important. It means that you are placed in the right level in courses but also when you are improving or not.
Students are usually levelled in two ways –
- Beginner, intermediate, advanced
- A1-C2 (using the CEFR framework)
In truth, many courses from the first type are still benchmarked against the CEFR. The level is just open to a wider scope of learners.
You can find out your level in a few ways – taking a placement test online or at a language school etc or taking a formal English test e.g. IELTS.
