More and more companies world wide are changing to English only in-house. This is great for us native English speakers, but it presents a lot of difficulties for employees. 

This article highlights the problems that companies have when trying to change their business language. 

This is exactly why I am launching 365 English lessons on 1st March: http://mbaenglishonline.com/365englishlessons/

Hello everyone,and thanks for the invitation +MindEnglish MLA.  Great community you have here.
Thought I would just share an interesting article I have just read, about companies around the world that are changing their business language to English, whether they are in China or Japan, or France or Germany.

It would be great to hear your views about this.  Is your company changing the language?  Has it changed?  How do you feel about this?

Story
Tagline
From the classroom to the boardroom!
Introduction
Originally from London, UK, where I was a freelance trumpet player and teacher, I now live in Tokyo as a freelance English teacher, and hopefully soon, as a freelance trumpeter again; got to hit the practice studio!  My passions in life are trumpet playing and working with others to set and achieve big goals.  My motto is: Aspire to Inspire!

I have established the website http://mbaenglishonline.com/ specifically for business English learners.  Many business men and women are simply too busy to take time out to study  with a teacher in person, so this website aims to make it possible for them to study in their own time from where ever they are.

Lessons cover pre and post MBA from writing academic essays and discussing complex business topics through to resume writing assistance and English interview seminars in conjunction with my partners.  MBA English Online also maintains a working relationship with recruiters here in Japan to aid the business English student find the perfect job: http://mbaenglishonline.com/post-mba/.

The website also boasts free downloadable vocabulary lists: http://mbaenglishonline.com/resource/  and free interactive vocabulary games and exercises:  http://mbaenglishonline.com/resource/mba-crosswords/ covering both business and MBA specific words and general English.

Feel free to contact me at ross@mbaenglishonline.com for more information.
