Conquering with English

Tools of progress

Ever since the dawn of human history, people have tried to conquer new territories, both physical and mental. From finding new caves where to hide and terrains with food and water, to finding a market niche that they can exploit in the XXI century, the basic instinct of progress has always remained the same. Those who are the smartest of all, try to figure out which are the best tools and weapons that allow them to move forwards, cast their enemies aside or just defeat them, and take the new things that they discover in order to make use of them. Increasingly complex and accurate weapons were the first of a long list of resources, and they are still used to acquire and mantain economical power in several regions of the world. However, with the evolution of culture, new tools have been developed which are products of the mentalization of human culture.

Nowadays, power and success are mediated by abstract exchanges, and thus people must conquer new intellectual resources in order to reach them. Those who run businesses of any size need to be aware - and most of them actually are aware - that knowledge is now as important as physical resources. This world is ruled by IT and communication is key for global success. Even if you want to establish a solid local business, you will have greater chances if you engage in international deals with customers and providers. Also, research and new discoveries performed in other parts of the world could be of use for you where you are, so you should be able to access all that knowledge. This cannot be achieved if you don't share a common language.

Globalized success

The more options remain opened for your business or entrepreneurship, the more likely you are to succeed in your field and surpass your competitors. No key resource should be overlooked, even if it goes beyond the goals of your business. There is good reason they are key resources. They could open doors for your progress that will boost your activities and your income. Professional proficiency in the English language is one of those key factors, and as projections go, it will be such for a long time. For this reason, investing in developing language proficiency is a very smart strategy that will almost immediately take your business to a whole new level.

However, this doesn't just apply for companies or groupal entrepreneurship. Every professional worker, and even some non-professional workers, can benefit from a competitive proficiency in English. This is a strong item in their resume that all smart recruiters valorate. Even if language proficiency isn't necessary for your particular job, managers are well aware of its value as an investment to the future. An employee who is proficient in English is an employee that will have more resources to face an expansion of the company or any sort of promotion. 

Even public institutions are aware of the value of English proficiency, and world wide english classes for business leaders are being dictated at several universities across the globe. Even if some people don't consider themselves business leaders but still have some sort of ambition, taking English classes is a great way to channel those ambitions and increase their chances to one day become successful entrepreneurs.

Professional English vs. everyday English

Even if basic English proficiency is needed for any use of the language, those who want to develop their language skills in order to boost their economical activities and succeed in business, need to achieve a very specific proficiency level. Key factors like fluency, pronunciation and grammar will be indispensable, but then, there is a particular area of the English language that will be of great use for professionals while it remains practically useless for the average advanced student.

Every field of expertise has a very specific vocabulary thay any professional of such field shoud dominate in order to consider him or herself proficient. In example, those who run businesses need a vocabulary centered in economy, with their very particular concepts and terms. Without them, these professionals won't be able to communicate with each other about their work. For this reason, professionals from all areas should take professional English classes aimed to their own disciplines. Many language schools such as Aston Academy offer these sort of courses, usually in small groups and with expert teachers that share the students' professional background.

English proficiency is one of the best investments for any business leader or professional worker, and those who reach high levels of English skills will always find themselves ahead of the curve.
