Whether you are consulting with your accountant about your business finances, negotiating a

language can help you communicate more effectively and accomplish your goals more efficiently.
Language is the method of human communication, either spoken or written. Not only is language a
means of communicating thoughts and ideas, but it also forges friendships, cultural ties, and economic
relationships. Language is the vehicle for transmitting knowledge, and today in our world, knowledge is one of the
key factors in gaining your competitive edge. Implementing valuable knowledge creates prosperity and growth. We
have all witnessed and experienced revolutionary changes in our lives with the advent of the Internet! Within the
last decade---thanks to the Internet---access to limitless knowledge is at our fingertips, and millions of people
across the world are able to communicate and to exchange ideas with each other on every continent. People across
