important is language to getting to the top of your profession?
An interesting statistic
of note is the ratio of language to success. You may note that the importance of MASTERY in your language, or the
language of the culture you are trying to succeed within, and your
ability to master your language, will directly correspond with your
ability to succeed in your life purpose. Those who have
the highest command of their language, almost without fail, are those
who rise to the top professions in government, business, and other
The worst thing about moving to
the UK was that I couldnít speak English. I grew up in Argentina and most of my
school life was dedicated to playing football. I was the best in my class all
the way through school, until I realized that I should have spent a little more
time on my studies and a little less in the playground. But since
football was my
passion, I wanted to pursue it as far as I could. One day I was playing for my
local club and was earmarked by a foreign scout, like so many South American
players, and was asked to come to London to attend a football player's
apprenticeship. I jumped at the chance.
As a professional
could work without having to open my mouth. But after two weeks I decided that
that was not a life. I had to go to a
language school. I went with the teamís interpreter and searched for a
school with the best
I could find. That
seemed to me to be a hard task. But it really wasnít
that hard. It was
easier to find a good
school in London than I had imagined.
I started learning and
improving my skills. Two months later I was quite good at talking to people and
making myself clear. It was a great success when I first ordered a beer in
English. The bad news was that I wasnít doing too good with the football team,
and I was let go from the team after nine months with the team.
I was very worried in the
beginning, but as my English taken in my
school in London was really good at that point, I could get a job
Once again I had to move, but I was starting to speak English more confidently,
and with the amount of foreign languages spoken around London I thought a change
of scenery would do me some good, and I searched for the best
language course Cambridge could offer, as I had heard from friends that it
was a centre of English scholarship.
So, I went to live to
Cambridge, learning English was a bit harder in the beginning. It was tiring
to study after work. I used to go to bed at 3:00 a.m. and now I had to get up at
7:00 a.m. in the morning. Until one day, while talking to a friend, he said I
could take a course during my lunch break; and that ended up working out
perfectly for me. The
courses in Cambridge offered were the best for me, though that doesn't mean
they would be the best for everybody. But now I can speak fluent English, when
only 3 years ago I could barely say "hello" without needed a dictionary.
"I'm now finding that with my
additional language skills I learned at my
Cambridge language school are enabling me to do considerably well in my
employment and find the success with my life purpose in ways I hadn't imagined
before coming to the United Kingdom. If you're struggling with English, try a
language school like the English
Cambridge language program and see if you don't notice a difference in your
quick payday loans to go back to school to take language courses
or to purchase books and audio tapes to teach yourself and improve
your language skills. For me, going to school in Cambridge made a
world of difference.
