World languages/Languages of Austria’s neighbouring countries
If you want to climb the career ladder in our globalised world, being proficient in the major business languages is clearly an imperative. The question is whether it will be sufficient in the future to speak only English as a second language. Yet there is no doubt that the currently prevailing business languages will also play a vital role in the future. A sound command of business English, for example, will unlock doors to careers in many different areas.
Many biz.talk clients are surprised to hear that Spanish ranks number two among the languages most frequently used in global communications today. Spanish is the official language in 21 countries, and particularly the prospering Latin American market boosts the importance of the Spanish language. Therefore, biz.talk also offers training courses in business Spanish which have been developed specifically for this purpose.
In addition to English and Spanish, French remains another important world language, as it is spoken by more than 100 million people in more than 50 countries. It is the official language in a large number of major international institutions and the prevailing language on the EU administrative level.
Especially here in Vienna, the Central and Eastern European markets are right on your doorstep. Learn to understand your customers by speaking their language.
China as an economic space and hence Chinese (Mandarin) as a new business language are also undergoing an exciting development. 845 million people have grown up with this language (Standard Chinese), making Mandarin the language with the largest number of native speakers and the second most spoken language in the world.
