Due to their infinite potential, foreign languages are gaining tremendous popularity. India has many well–established multi–national companies which require foreign language expertise for transactions, reporting and translation of documents. In most of such organizations, knowledge of a foreign language is considered as an additional qualification.
The market scope of a foreign language skill is virtually endless. Infinite job opportunities in diverse fields open up for a person who is conversant in a foreign language – be it the technology industry (where one needs to regularly interact with offshore clients/counterparts) or the BPO sector (where one is required to interact with culturally diverse people) or Trade Industry (which involves imports/exports these days considering India´s ‘global economy’ model). Knowledge of foreign languages is particularly beneficial in the following industries/fields:
- Travel, Tourism & Airlines

- Interpretation & Translation in Private & Public Sector
- Export & Import Houses
