Walter Anzer is a Senior Consultant for Anzer Consultancy Ltd.
Walter uses a foreign language everyday he is at work and believes that being able to speak a foreign language is advantageous in his industry. However, he also thinks that you would need to be very proficient.
Could you give us some examples of when you have used foreign languages at work?
I work for a number of UK Trade Associations and use foreign languages when speaking to other Trade Associations in Europe and also at meeting with the European Commission, Parliament, etc.
What would you say to a young person about the benefits of speaking at least one other language when entering the workplace?
It will be reflected in their position and salary, and opens the possibility of getting a job abroad.
A huge thank you to Walter for taking the time to tell us a little about how he uses languages at work!
