Live Abroad and Be Better in Business

Did you know that those who move abroad to set up a new life make very good and successful business people? Yes it's true! Many students go to university for years to study business and management but it doesn't always necessarily mean that they will graduate with the same useful qualities that expats acquire whilst living in a foreign country.

Years of studying at university using textbooks may benefit some learners, but it doesn't prepare everyone for the world of business. There are some students who could benefit from a little textbook learning, others who risk losing all of their natural talents when entering the classroom environment and then there are the rest who are simply not cut out to work in this work sector.

Writers - Stop Giving Your Work Away!

The translation industry is like many other creative industries, in which the public are not so forward in giving these professionals neither the credit that they deserve or the payments. Although any career associated with languages is classed as a creative career and is often an enjoyable profession, there is a lot of study and hard work that goes in to becoming a professional in this sector.

I recently read an article about language professionals giving away their work, which highlighted some very important points related to these professions.

Do Children Learn Languages Quicker than Adults?

According to what we hear, children are better at learning foreign languages than adults are. But is this true? No, it is not. It is an excuse that adults tell themselves which stop them from learning progressing in a foreign language.

When children learn a new language, they are rarely corrected nor criticised and do not put pressure on themselves. They relax and have fun which makes the learning process a lot more enjoyable than it is for adults. Children are often not afraid to speak and use their new skills, where as adults tend to shy off from using their knowledge of the new language.
