THE 6 MOST DEMANDED LANGUAGES BY COMPANIES
When a company is growing and entering the international arena, it is aware that languages will account for at least 50% of its business success. Then come the doubts about the language level of its employees… Do we reinforce their English level? Do we train them in the language of the specific country?
Thanks to our experience we see how large companies solve this problem. English is a basic language that all employees who have contact with other countries should master. If you enter a country with a different language, you will always have English. However, we have seen how training your employees in the country’s own language is very beneficial for companies. That closeness that is achieved by speaking your client’s native language breaks down all the barriers that a transaction between countries can bring.
That’s why at Classgap for Enterprise we tell you the languages most in demand by companies, so that your employees are fully prepared.
Languages most in demand to work
There is no need to repeat the importance of English in the business world, it is the language of business. By training your employees in English you will be able to keep your team globalised.
It is the most widely spoken language in the world, spoken by almost 15% of the planet’s population.
The Chinese market is growing in almost all sectors. Chinese companies are expanding all over the world and doing business with them in their own language is a great opportunity to differentiate themselves from the competition.
This language does not have the importance it deserves, it is the official language in 28 countries in which we find some of the most important economies in the world.
Both its writing and its oral expression are completely different from that of Spanish, so it is not an easy language to learn. However, the Arab culture places great importance on respect and tradition. With a basic training in this language and learning about their way of doing business, you will show respect for them and their culture, which will set you apart from the rest.
Although it is not so widespread, this language has a great weight in Europe. Germany is a great European power, but training your employees in German not only opens the doors to this country, its neighbours such as Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Holland, Luxembourg… it is a widely used language so thanks to training in German you open up a world of possibilities.
Despite not being one of the most demanded languages, it is the second most spoken language in South America. It offers opportunities both in Brazil and Portugal and in some areas of Africa, making it an interesting language to learn when it comes to internationalisation.
Our great neighbour, it is common for Spanish companies when expanding their business to other countries to start with France, besides being a language that many have been able to learn at school, it is easier to take up training in French for workers.
How can I do language training for employees online?
Many times training companies only offer one discipline to train their employees, that’s why at Classgap for Enterprise we offer an integral training solution. Thanks to our large database with the best professionals in all subjects, you can hire a training for your employees in the language they need.
In addition, the training is personalized, so the specific aspect that each one needs will be reinforced, for example: if one needs to improve his English speaking and another his French grammar… no problem!
How do I know what level my employees have?
In order to personalise the training to the maximum, at Classgap for Enterprise we carry out a training needs audit for your company to correctly identify them and be able to adapt the training. For example, you may want to train your salespeople in English speaking to make them more fluent, but we find that you really need to reinforce grammar and vocabulary.
What is the most suitable methodology for my employees?
At Classgap for Enterprise we conduct In Company and One to One classes depending on the company’s objective. If your team receives language training as a benefit, and you want to progressively increase their level, group classes are ideal, creating synergies between employees and strengthening the team. If, on the other hand, you need to reinforce a particular aspect of an employee, for example Business English, One to One classes will be the best option.
