Express Language Solutions have been involved in the Business Language Champions project as part of its Corporate and Social Responsibility. We are proud to report that we have recently been acknowledged by the project, which was organized by CILT – The National Centre for Languages, for our contribution towards the promotion of language learning for work. According to BBC Languages, research has shown that on average, people who use languages in their jobs earn around 8% more.
Express Language Solutions, along with other Business Language Champions across England, participated in activities which engaged over 22,000 students between June 2009 and March 2011. Figures have shown that teachers feel participation in the Business Language Champions project had a direct impact on raising uptake and student interest in languages.
Express Language Solutions continues to offer advice on cultural awareness and languages to local participants of the Business Language Champions project. We hope that they found the project both useful and enjoyable, and we wish them the very best of luck for the future.
