I’ve talked to many recruiters who say it’s necessary to speak more than one language to succeed in today’s business environment. The growth of the global economy means that an individual in, say, Tokyo is competing against and working with people from across the globe. So how can a person succeed if they can’t communicate in more than one language?
For nearly 20 years those of us at Rosetta Stone have worked to promote language skills in schools around the world to prepare students for their global futures. The World Affairs Council of Washington, DC, recently presented Rosetta Stone with its Global Education Award for our commitment to language education, during the nonprofit organization’s annual Global Education Gala on March 8, 2012.
Thanks to the World Affairs Council for sharing the video below showcasing the presentation of the Global Education Award to our Chairman of the Board, Tom Adams.
