Knowing a foreign language not only adds substance to their Resume but also enhances their career options and even enriches them as an individual.' With more and more Indians working abroad and more and more foreign nationals visiting our country not only for tourism but also for business, learning foreign languages has become vitally important.

Speaking on the occasion R. Panickar Director General of Indo Global Colleges said that although English is predominantly important as global business language, it is equally important to learn other foreign languages like French, German, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin. Learning a foreign language not only stimulates the mind of the youth, but it would also create a healthy impression on the foreign counterpart with whom communication is being established for transacting business; it would imply that you are willing to go that extra mile to build long term business relationship.
