Perhaps, this question can seem to the strange – what there can be a communication here? After all crisis is when not enough money and expensive goods or on the contrary – – roofs are higher than goods, and to buy them there is nothing. But, apparently, here also does not smell as English! But we made simpler – asked about this communication of people. Simply to tell – conducted survey.
Opinions of people were shared. To tell more precisely, the question took a half of respondents unawares and they gave quite expected answer – one does not influence another. But allow, and why to you in general your abilities if they do not help you to have hard times? However, it is possible is caused by that people do not perceive crisis presence yet – so far it only on pages of newspapers and on screens of TVs. Yes some very impressionable employers who are not understanding an essence of this phenomenon and not knowing exit formulas from this state started reducing ranks of the employees and are afraid of employment of new experts. Crisis, work, English the biggest group which gave the substantial answer to the asked question agreed in opinion that the knowledge of English is capable to help to keep work or in case of its loss to receive the new. Also wrote about a salary – despite crisis, the knowledge of English increases chances not only employments, but also increases of compensation. It and is clear – whatever times were and if one person can replace (to do work) two, fairly quite if he receives more money.
The valuable expert knowing a foreign language will be demanded also for other reason at all times. Yes, there are professional translators who own lexicon in a certain field of knowledge – law, of petrochemistry, accounts departments, for example. But ask any expert working with the translator – as upsets with his time that the professional linguist cannot precisely report nuances. Therefore the branch expert with knowledge of language is more valuable, even not because it is necessary to support (to pay work) two employees. He can understand more precisely in what place of negotiations it is worth asking on nuances of this or that offer, more precisely to transfer the thoughts. It helps both to avoid the conflicts, and to put into operation new technologies quicker and more effectively.
Here that people wrote, answering a question of poll: "It is highly paid work and self-affirmation", "Experts with language are more expensive", "To have good work in the foreign company", "It is easier to find new or additional work", "Additional privileges at employment", "With language the salary is more", "The knowledge of the yaangliysky does me to more competitive", "Huge plus to my qualification", "Expansion of business contacts, search of new partners", "Steadier situation at work", "Do not dismiss professionals". Reading literature in the original Is not less correct, than ability is good to work and ability is good to have a rest. Even the saying such Russian is: "who is able to have a rest well, that is able and it is good to work". In the answers someone wrote that will read specific authors – O'Genri, Mark Twain, Jerome K. Jerome, someone spoke trivialities that such reading will distract, allow to relax, spend a little time in the pleasure. And when a spirit good, a state balanced – problems (any) are solved much more simply. Additional earnings you remember crisis of the 90th years recent still? Even who had a work, sometimes lacked money. Yes what to say – money in general such thing which constantly is not enough. Many in that case look for a side job. Here too knowledge of English helps. You can teach usual private lessons. After all because of crisis life can only be slowed down, but not stop. It means that in the same way young people and their parents will think of the future, besides – of work, a profession. We already discussed this subject in the first part, advantages are obvious here. Except tutoring are always necessary what - or the translations. And it will be the translations as for the people specified in the first section - that is the translations of business literature, scientific, and for people from the second part – for fans of fiction. To be aware always and to be the first Here we again come back to a subject of business and business relations. Any businessman will tell you as it is good and correct to be aware of events, especially the latest news, especially the first. It gives big advantages in competitive fight: you can correct the direction of the movement of the company or see a new unoccupied niche, foresee the direction of development of the market.
"To become the leader of the market, it is necessary to put before itself as the author of books and the consultant for questions of business Jim Collins speaks, "the big shaggy impudent purposes". It is impossible to be limited to the accounting of the past or even a present condition of the market. It is necessary to foresee, in what direction it will move further and what impact these or those privkhodyashchy circumstances can have on a choice of this direction. Only this way, being guided by probabilistic forecasts, it is possible to conduct the company forward. To receive a big prize, sometimes it is required to take the serious risk."
"Business with a thought speed"
Why English? Let's a little recede from a subject of today's discussion and we will clear a question why there is such emphasis on English.
We are not fans and not admirers of English. Moreover, we consider that Russian is much richer and more expressive. It more we love us, it is clear to us since the childhood, it native. But so it developed what exactly English became language of business communication, language of obtaining very various information. And though say that Chinese on the earth it is most than others, at all hipness of hobby of studying Chinese, it is represented very improbable that the world will learn Chinese and will start talking on it – too difficult language, too difficult letter. We go to other countries Among respondents, strangely enough, there were also such answers. It would seem – crisis about which speak very much, is going to be world, that is will affect all and everyone. What sense to go to other country? But why is not present? After all the critical situation is similar to a hurricane – on big squares storms, but it is always possible to find the secluded quiet small place and to wait there bad weather. And it is valid – in one country live can be simpler, than in another – some time. And here it is not necessary to argue on patriotism and "flight from the sinking ship". Sometimes the ship should be left for time to swim up to it outside and to patch holes from the outside. Quite so, but not to sit out in a quiet place until it is repaired or to observe how sinks. That is here we again insist that, as well as Russian, the native land is all the same closer to us. Where we lived and whatever did, whatever language spoke at this concrete moment.
But, as well as in a case with English of "house", English "for trips" also shares into "English for business trips" or for work abroad and "English for rest". Only here we do not read the book any more, and we go to other countries to have a rest and gain strength.
The list of the countries where speak English, is quite impressive. It is Australia, the Bahamas, Botswana (though national language is the setsvana), Gambia, India (along with Hindi and 14 other languages), Ireland (along with the Irish language), Cameroon (along with French), Canada (at the federal level — along with French), New Brunswick (along with French), Nunavut (along with French, Inuktitut and Inuvialuktun), the North-West Territories (along with French and the Eskimo languages — Chipewyan, Cree, Dogrib, Gwich’in, Inuktitut and Slavey), Yukon (along with French), Kenya (along with Swahili), Kiribati, part of the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong (along with Chinese), Nigeria, New Zealand (is a state language according to tradition; the second legislatively defined Maori), Pakistan, Papua New Guinea (along with Melanesian a pidzhin-English (Tok Pisin) and Motu), Singapore (along with Malayan, wearied also Chinese), the Republic of South Africa (along with an Afrikaans, to the ndebela, northern soto, soto, take, Tsonga, a tsvana, a venda, a braid, the Zulu), parts of the USA. The constitution of the USA did not define a state language; English is the first language according to tradition, but not under the law. English is official language in the following states and territories: Iowa, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Wyoming, Virginia, Hawaii (along with the Hawaiian language), Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, California, Kentucky, Colorado, Louisiana (along with French), Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Gempshir, New Mexico (along with Spanish), Puerto Rico (along with Spanish), Northern Carolina, Northern Dakota, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Fiji (along with fidzhiysky and a Hindustani), Philippines (though national language is Philippine).
Represent, with what number of people you will be able to communicate if except the native language you own also English?! Communication is life Separately also small group of people who consider was defined that the most usual communication with friends will help them to endure crisis. But not only with the Russian friends. But also with English-speaking, in other countries. And this thought is especially valuable – after all it means that at us exists not only the competition (and it, unfortunately, as is shown by history, leads sometimes to the military conflicts), but also desire of interaction, joint one-way traffic. And it is much more valuable aspiration. Besides, communication removes problems, helps to relax and have satisfaction. After all so far the person is living, the more he live, the it is more and he communicates with a great interest. To use, it is necessary to own And, in summary, such banal thought: to have opportunity to use all aforesaid, it is necessary after all to know English well. Knowledge at the level of "I read and transport with the dictionary" will not give you those advantages about which it was mentioned in this article.
Now time in general was accelerated. As they say in the known book about Alice, "it is necessary to run very quickly at least to remain on a place". Language too should be learned quickly. And here we have a good news to you.
From other poll we knew that few people know that English can be learned approximately in a year. And thus it is not necessary to use the titanic efforts and to break through visible and invisible barriers, feeling as the soldier conqueror. It is possible to learn English "from scratch" approximately in 9 months of intensive occupations. But not everywhere. In "Applied Formation of the CIS" there is a course of English of "English as a Second Language" constructed on the technique of natural development of English similar to that way which we learned the native language in the childhood. With its help you can quickly acquire English – without tiresome performance of exercises from the textbook and learning of rules of grammar.
Everything that you receive on this course is a large number of practice of communication in English and only the most necessary theoretical data. Certainly, the teacher will not refuse to you the reference to the theory of language if you want to understand grammar more deeply. But it is not necessary for our course. Practice begins with the very first lesson of the most initial level and occupies every time about 80% of time of all lesson. After such number of communication at you simply does not remain chances of to learning to speak English.
As there is a training as, without knowing language absolutely, it is possible to start speaking from the first occupation language (we are reasonable people and we understand that the phrase means in this case "to start speaking language" - within the studied subject and words, certainly, but not "suddenly to start talking in English"), it is possible to see and feel on itself if you visit our free introduction lesson in Moscow. It is possible to register in it on the page of the site of a course or having called by phones: (495) 680-66-73, 680-83-45, 507-87-09. On a page "Contacts" you can also find coordinates for communication with groups in which it is possible to be trained on the same course in other cities.
Progress to you in studying of English!
