Learning Another Language: It’s Good for Business and Good for You

Business travelers who know a foreign language are a big plus. It can also be a boost for the employee’s career.

Even when the job market is tight, many companies welcome multilingual workers, understanding they can create stronger relationships with foreign customers and clients.

But it also adds to your bottom line:

  • Studies have shown multilingual employees earn between 10 and 20 percent more
  • More networking opportunities can translate into greater exposure and more career opportunities
  • Multilinguals have an edge over competitors, resulting in more business and making you a more valuable employee
  • More opportunities for social interaction with foreign clients; it’s harder for a customer to say “no” to someone they know socially
  • Foreign travel is much easier, allowing you to focus more on business
