    • MYTH:EVERYONE SPEAKS ENGLISH: WE DO NOT NEED TO LEARN OTHER LANGUAGES
    • Only 6% of the global population are native speakers of English
      75% speak no English at all
      In less than 20 years, most Internet material will be in Chinese, not English
      There are already more blogs in Japanese than in English
      Other European countries aim to be able to work in 3 languages
      FACTS
    • 60% + of British trade is with non-English speaking countries  
      Clients speaking English prefer using their native language when doing business
       British business has the poorest language skills in Europe (bottom out of 39 industrialised countries)
       
      British businesses lose £millions every year because they can’t speak their client’s language –usually without realising it
