Can you speak English?
Have you ever considered why you need a good command of English for job interviews?
When you start speaking your mother tongue before your interviewer, he may ask you, “Can you speak English?” or “Do you speak English?”
Let me tell you why you need English speaking skills for job interviews:
First, your interviewer may not know your mother tongue.
Second, your interviewer may be from a different state or country where English is prevalent.
Third, your company wants to send you to a different location where you need a good command of the English language.
Next, you may need to communicate with different stakeholders, and you need excellent English communication skills.
English communication has become an integral part of career development.
Is English Important for Job Interviews?
Many job aspirants do not get a good job opportunity despite possessing technical skills since many companies expect candidates to speak English fluently.
To substantiate the above idea, I will take you through the story of Amit, one of my students.
Amit came to meet me about six years ago and he said:
I have been working as a team leader for 3 years.
I intend to change my job; however, no company considers me for the next position due to poor communication skills.
I even watched many YouTube videos to improve my English communication skills, but I failed completely.”
He desperately wanted a good job in his hometown Lucknow since he had been in Gurgaon for more than six years.
Moreover, his marriage had been on hold for one year as his fiancee’ inveigled her to get a job in Lucknow only.
It was not about money, it was for his love.
He joined me immediately.
He was so determined to learn that he outdid every classmate.
He practised day in day out to improve his English communication skills.
He even improved his English speaking and writing skills within three months.
He was able to speak English fluently without any hurdle.
He disappeared after completing this course without any intimation.
After one month, I got a call from him when he averred:
Sir, I was selected by five companies one after another.
Before improving my communication, every company rejected me.
However, after this course, I have five job offers in my hometown.
This improvement is momentous for me. I called you to thank you for this achievement.”
He also shared that he had joined two English speaking classes before coming to me. He was just hopeless.
This training proved transformational for him.

Why should We Learn English?
You might ask, “Why should we learn English?”
You need English communication skills for job interviews and career progression.
However, you might need English speaking skills to join a good college or institute.
Let me explain.
Reena wanted to join a famous MBA college after her graduation.
She had to face a personal interview to enter college; hence, she needed effective communication skills.
She was not good at English communication but wanted to join the college at any cost to have a rewarding career.
She joined a public speaking institute to improve her English communication skills without considering her real weakness.
She had limited knowledge of tenses, modals, and other nuances of grammar.
The institute never promised her to improve these aspects of English communication.
The job of the institute was to help participants understand and develop nuances of public speaking. She ended up wasting her time and money.
It is essential for you to understand your challenge before you begin a course.
It does not require much time. You just need little clarity.
If you can understand English and write well but cannot speak English, you should focus on English Speaking Skills.
However, if you cannot write and understand English, you may focus on grammar, translation, and conceptual clarity.
When Reena joined our institute, we helped her to improve the sentence structure and other mistakes.
After that, we made her understand and develop the nuances of effective communication. She was able to clear her interview after one month.
How I Struggled to Learn English
Let me take you through my story.
After getting a professional degree, I realized that I could not speak English fluently and confidently.
I had to converse with my colleagues, clients, and other people during my internship.
I joined an institute to improve English for job interviews.
However, I was reluctant to discuss my challenge in detail.
After a little assessment, my session started. I was taught grammar, tenses, and modal verbs for two months.
I did not even have one session of English conversation or group discussion.
By the time I took cognizance of the situation, the duration of the course had got over.
I joined another institute to get the hang of English conversation.
To my surprise, that institute also focused more on grammar and tenses.
I left the institute in ten days. Having made a little improvement, I lost my trust in English speaking coaching institutes.
I came across one online communication skills training course that helped me to understand and develop nuances of effective communication skills.
I also realized I was never taught the nuances of English communication skills.
If you want to learn English easily and quickly, you can start reading the following books:
