WHY LEARN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE


The Market is Global !

You will need to convince the prospective employer, that you have a command over the language and that you can deal with foreign and local customers or suppliers properly. Your proficiency in the relevant language  must  be at least equal to if not above that of your competitors.  

Admission /Visa Requirement  !
 
Most foreign universities will require certified competence in the relevant language for admission purpose.  Also embassies of many countries insist on certified proficiency in the relevant language before a study or immigration visa can be issued.   

Become a Better Person  !
 
Language is not the only thing you learn in a language course. The pleasant learning environment, getting to know foreign cultures and group discussions  promote better cultural and social interaction. The students automatically develop more self-confidence and learn to express themselves more effectively, which has  a deep rooted positive impact on their personality.
