The topic of the English language in companies has become increasingly important with globalization and is an integral part of international companies. The starting point for this development was the increasing internationalization of the markets more than twenty years ago. It is estimated that at least two billion people throughout the world now speak English. Because of this, more international companies are choosing English as their language of business. That is why many people believe that in today's corporate world, English is a must, and you have to speak it well. Whether English is an advantage or a disadvantage but that depends on each individual.
The first argument put forward in favor of introducing English as the language of business is standardization. If everyone speaks the same language and meetings are held, people will be able to communicate effectively and efficiently. There will be no discussions or false expectations when it comes to the language used in meetings within the company, but also and especially in cross-company meetings. Consequently, you will not use interpreters for negotiations. At the time, this language mediation service was perceived as a nuisance by many parties involved and also caused high costs. This topic is becoming increasingly important today and is becoming more and more important in times of globalization.
