Last night I went to a consultation evening at my university. Let me explain more. I do business management, and in my third year, which I am in, I have to instead of a dissertation, do a ‘business consultancy project’. This involves basically putting it shortly, that I am being a consult for a small company, but doing it for free.
So, last night was a compulsory event for my course to get advice from actual consultants, on how they approach things. Not all the stuff that they pointed out was relevant for my project, as it was just an event for being interested in the profession. Me personally I am not, well not yet, I think they did suggest, I want to find my passionate area within business first – get experience and niche knowledge in that area and then possibly go into this area, rather than what everyone else does is start their own business, because that just isn’t me.
Actually! I will admit something very embarrassing. Until last night I actually didn’t fully know what a consult was… When I think of a consultant, I think of a GP. But I was kind of right, you do get medical consultants.
Anyway, the point of this post! One of them said something that I know I’ve needed to do I just haven’t done it.
Learn a new language.
I know its important, especially within businesses if you want to well because you need to be able to communicate with everyone.
But I am just stubborn and lazy, I always have been in this area. I know you have to take time and put effort into doing this and I don’t want to because a lot of people do have a basic level of English. I know I am terrible! But I really do want to learn another language.
But my question is which one? which is going to give me most out of it, if that makes sense?
Anyone have the answer?
Which language should I learn?
