Eucom Survey: 2 out of 3 Romanian employees would learn a foreign language in order to advance in their career

The interim results of the latest survey conducted by Eucom, foreign language courses provider and part of the Ascendis Group, show that 2 out of 3 Romanian employees (66per cent of all respondents) want to learn a foreign language in order to develop professionally and perceive course attendance as a benefit from the company that also aims at personal development

"Employers provide benefits in the form of language training programs with the aim of providing their employees with communication skills in foreign languages for the business environment, but they all realize that this opportunity helps employees to develop on a personal level as well, not only on a professional level', says Delia Dragomir, Eucom Managing Partner.

As far as employee availability to attend courses is concerned, the interim results of the Eucom Survey show that more than half of them (53per cent) could attend two sessions each week, motivated by their desire to see the first learning results just halfway through the module. One-third of employees would like to attend a foreign language course three times a week for a fast-paced study of the target language and visible results after each course session.

To the question "How would it be appropriate to set out the learning objectives of foreign language course?", eight respondents out of ten (84per cent) said that they should be established by the student together with the course trainer, thus demonstrating that a close partnership between the trainer and the trainee does facilitate attainment of the objectives. The number of those who believe that they have to set out their learning targets on their own or together with their managers is much lower, thus relying on foreign language specialists.

Another result of the Eucom Survey shows that most respondents who would enroll in a foreign language course for personal development would choose to learn German (45 per cent) or English (27 per cent), followed by Latin languages like French, Spanish or Italian. The motivation for such a preference is the rather large proportion of those already studying or acquainted with English; in 2016 Eucom delivered client companies with English courses in a proportion of 52 per cent.

The trainer's teaching style is essential in motivating an employee not to skip classes, 70per cent of survey respondents state. The foreign language specialist must be dynamic and interactive, flexible and innovative, a partner of the student throughout the course. An important role in regularly attending course sessions is played by the results obtained by the student, but also the ongoing pursuit of the learning objectives. This way the student ensures that he/she becomes active in the target language.
The Eucom Survey was conducted on a sample of 300 people - students or prospective students in Eucom's programs. The study was conducted between April and June 2017 and it was aimed at identifying why companies request foreign language courses and how employees want the courses dedicated to them to be.
