Language and culture knowledge are essential for building a successful relationship with foreign business partners. Big companies realize that, which means that language skills are a valuable skill on any modern professional's CV. If you want to work in the corporate world, speaking a foreign language(or several) will put you ahead of the competition.   If you want to work directly with languages, there are many positions you can fill. You can be responsible for international communication in a company, or work in tourism, or customer service on an international level. Or you can forge your own path. In today's global age, a foreign language is an asset in any business.    

A language certificate on a CV is a great way for candidates to stand out when applying. Command over multiple language doesn't just mean the person is bilingual - it also indicated they're motivated, can learn new things, and have a good memory. - employerSpeaks

Languages, hundredPercentOfTheTime

Europe's language sector has a projected growth of over 10% per year. Due to technological advancements, people nowadays have more opportunities than ever to learn a new language.   A good example of this is gamification. You can learn a language by playing games in it! Learning doesn't need to be boring and monotonous. You can also learn a language by playing word games or taking quizzes.  

We're a big company, and we operate in several countries. Language barriers sometimes make inner-company communication difficult. I resort to online translating software daily, but that's not a perfect solution. I recently took a language course through the Centre, and it has really helped me start connecting to some of the people in the other offices. I strongly recommend their courses. - exStudentSpeaking

Anyone can learn a language. You don't need any advance preparation - you just need motivation and the right language course.
