Languages in Business

Language is a ​system of ​communication consisting of ​sounds, words, and ​grammar, or the ​system of ​communication used by ​people in a ​particular ​country or ​type of ​work.[1]


It is a common knowledge that English is now the global language of business. Many multinational companies are mandating English as their common corporate language in an attempt to facilitate communication and performance across geographically diverse functions and business endeavors.[2]
