English is "by far" the most widely used language in the world, particularly within trade and commerce. According to The British Council, English is the first language for 373 million people and for another 500 million it is their second language. As a result, everyone actually expects us to speak and write in English, especially within business. Having a real impact during negotiations, being able to convey exactly what you want to say, as you would in your own language, whether it be regarding general topics or very specific matters, that is what practice often requires. Being proficient in the first language of the world is therefore vital for any international business. By attending an English language course you can give that proficiency a boost!
