Dubai, 5th November 2014 â€“ In todayâ€™s highly competitive world, acquiring a professional certification in language proficiency has become a necessity â€“ either for academic, professional or personal purposes. According to the Bayt.com 2013 Job Index Survey, 51% of employers in the UAE seek candidates with good communication skills in Arabic and English. Multilingual people are in high demand for careers in multinational companies, media, tourism and hospitality sectors among others. Furthermore, studies have shown that individuals fluent in more than one language are skilled at multitasking, have better memory and decision-making skills.
Eton Institute, the UAEâ€™s largest language and professional development provider, offers a wide range of exam preparation courses for internationally recognized language proficiency tests. It is also the only Institute in the UAE that is an accredited testing center for eight language proficiency examinations, namely: IELTS, BULATS, TOEIC, ALCT, DELE, YLE, CILS and Ã–SD.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the most popular test taken by individuals to gauge their English language proficiency. The Business Language Testing Service (BULATS) and the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) are designed specifically to measure the everyday English skills of people working in an international environment. The Arabic Language Competency Test (ALCT) is intended to test the Arabic language proficiency for personal or professional purposes. For other language proficiency assessments, Eton Institute offers the Diploma de EspaÃ±ol como Lengua Extranjera(DELE), Young Learners English (YLE), Certificazione di Italiano come Lingua Straniera (CILS) and Ã–sterreichisches Sprachdiplom Deutsch (Ã–SD).
There are multiple benefits for individuals with a certificate of language proficiency. Working professionals or students, who wish to immigrate to a foreign country for permanent residency, a job or higher education, are required to prove their language proficiency. â€œIn the UAE, most companies have a multicultural workforce. Job seekers who are certified and proficient in one or more languages are more likely to be employed. When seeking for career advancement and professional growth, getting an assessment on language competence will give an individual a competitive advantage in the workplace,â€ says Moaz Khan, Marketing Director at Eton Institute. â€œLearning a new language will give a person a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction as this will increase his level of communication and network of contacts,â€ he added.
