Eucom: Nine out of ten corporate Romanians can communicate in a foreign language

Up to 94% of the people audited by organizations in Romania have good or very good knowledge of foreign languages, as shown by the results of an analysis performed by Eucom, one of the top language services company, part of Ascendis Group.

"In 2015, Eucom consultants reviewed over 4,500 young professionals who were put through a series of tests to determine their actual level of foreign language knowledge. The results of the evaluations show that 69% of the people assessed are independent users of a foreign language, meaning that they can communicate accurately and use various vocabulary terms coherently, on familiar or more challenging topics.

Moreover, 25% of those evaluated fall in the 'experienced user' category, which means, for example, that they can easily take part in conferences or business meetings in the targeted foreign language", said Delia Dragomir, Partner with Eucom.

Generally, companies require language audit services during recruitment procedures, to check job applicants' communication skills in various foreign languages. However, the trend among companies is to resort to the language testing of their employees especially in the process of a hierarchical promotion or for awarding performance bonuses.

"The languages for which our linguistic audit services have been most frequently in demand were: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Out of the total assessments made last year, there were 31% for English, 22% French, 18% German, 11% Spanish, Italian 6%, " said Delia Dragomir.
Overall, in 2015, more than 10,000 employees of companies in Romania, operating in various fields such as automotive, manufacturing, retail, outsourcing, telecom, financial services and IT, participated in the language courses delivered by Eucom trainers.

"Although the general foreign language level of employees or potential employees is good, employers often opt for further language courses. In order for them to achieve the objectives in today's business environment, employees need to master the terminology specific to the industry in which the company operates. As such, we deliver customized language courses to meet both the learners' communication objectives and our clients' business needs," said Delia Dragomir.

According to the Common European Reference Framework for Languages, comprehension, speaking and writing skills in a foreign language can be classified into six levels: A1, A2 (elementary users, who understand and know basic notions), B1 and B2 (independent users, who show a high level of understanding and use complex structures in a foreign language), C1 and C2 (experienced users, who have no difficulties in understanding, speaking and writing in a foreign language).
