Culture Tips: Importance of English

Larry: Culture Tips

Saly: ຄວາມຮູ້ພິເສດທາງດ້ານວັດທະນະທຳ

ໃນພາກຄວາມຮູ້ພິເສດເທື່ອນີ້ ເຮົາຈະໄດ້ຮັບຄຳຕອບທີ່ຖາມວ່າ: ດຽວນິີ້ພາສາອັງກິດໄດ້ກາຍມາເປັນພາສາສາກົນທາງດ້ານທຸຣະກິດການຄ້າແລ້ວບໍ?

  • a face-to-face meeting ແປວ່າກອງປະຊຶ້ງໜ້າກັນ
  • documentation ແປວ່າ ການເຮັດໃຫ້ເປັນເອກະສານໄດ້ ຫຼືບັນທຶກໄວ້ເປັລລາຍລັກອັກສອນ.

Even if you can’t speak English well, you need to be able to read it. ແປວ່າ ເຖິງແມ່ນເຈົ້າຈະປາກອັງກິດບໍ່ໄດ້ກໍຕາມ ເຈົ້າກໍມີຄວາມຈຳເປັນຕ້ອງໃຫ້ອ່ານໄດ້.

The dominant language of the Internet is English. ແປວ່າພາສາທີ່ໃຊ້ກັນແພ່ຫຼາຍໃນອິນເຕິແນັຕ ກໍຄືພາສາອັງກິດ.

Eliz: Welcome once again to “Culture Tips” with Gary Engleton.

Today’s question is, “Has English really become the international language for business?”

Gary: Well, that’s a difficult question.

Eliz: Why is that?

Gary: In face-to-face business meetings, many different languages are used.

But for business writing, English is the most popular language.

Even if you can’t speak English well, you need to be able to read it.

Eliz: Why do you think that’s true?

Gary: One reason is an increase in exports.

Today, most large corporations export their products all over the world.

You have to include documentation with your products.

And it’s not practical to translate this information into every language.

Eliz: So English has become standard.

Gary: Yes. In addition, businesses have become increasingly dependent on e-mail and the Internet.

And the dominant language of the Internet is English.

Finally, most of the important scientific and business journals are in English.

If you want to keep up in business, you need to read English.

Eliz: Thank you, Gary!

Gary: My pleasure!
