Poor language skills

You are sitting in a conversation with customers from abroad and can only talk in broken English? Your Spanish colleagues in the office speak in their mother tongue and you can not participate because you have not used your Spanish for too long? Your dream job in an Italian design company is advertised, but in the job requirements are basic skills required in Italian?

In a survey of the Economist, 75 percent of executives assessed the communicative abilities of their employees in the international context as an average or below average.

Also disturb cultural barriers

Communication is particularly difficult, however, especially when the cultural understanding that is urgently needed for international business meetings is missing in addition to the language barrier. Half of the respondents in the study said that failed communication is the main reason for mishaps in international activities.

But when you think about how much time you spend on a computer or a smartphone, what would be the half an hour a day spent investing in learning a language? Thanks to entertaining and effective apps, the lack of time to learn a language is actually no excuse anymore.

Trend: Learning languages ​​through e-learning

The following trends are characterized by the self-study of a language:

  1. Learn interactively: Passive memorizing of vocabulary is, firstly, no fun and, secondly, what you have learned does not last long. Today eLearning gives you the opportunity to acquire a new language in a simple and interactive way. So you feel about by direct feedback for pronunciation an immediate learning effect.
  2. Have fun: Good on-line solutions now have live online lessons with native speakers in the program. This allows the learner to use the appropriate language skills equally. It's just fun to speak in the new language, and to conduct first conversations with native speakers directly from the desk.
  3. Learning everywhere: Mobile learning is now the trend. It also greatly facilitates the learning of a language. You can easily take short lessons in the new language on the go with an app on your smartphone or tablet. It is important to ensure that apps are not only aimed at learning individual words, but that the language is brought into context from the beginning. Also you should not rely on your own mother tongue, but you should learn directly in the target language. Thus, one enters a new language without detours and makes rapid progress.
  4. Learn at any time: Another advantage of mobile apps is the possibility to learn independently of time. Especially when learning a language, there should be no limits. Whenever the personal schedule allows, and you just want to have another lesson, a simple log-in should be possible. It is important, however, that the learning progress is automatically synchronized - whether you work on the smartphone, during the lunch break on the computer or on the train with a tablet.
  5. See success: Trust is good, control is better. Especially when you learn a language in self-study, it is important that the e-learning tool offers a good insight into personal progress. Feedback on your own pronunciation is at the top of the list. For security in speaking a new language is the beginning of successful language learning. One not only learns to use language in everyday situations, but at the same time bring success experiences to motivation,
