Building Bright Futures
In 2010, I had my eyes opened to the harsh realities of how people can unjustly view a foreigner who lacks command of the English language. The misconception often made is that the person has deficient intelligence determined solely by one´s lack of mastery of the English language. That someone was my wife, whom I had just met at that time soon after she arrived in the U.S. from her native country of Colombia. Sadly, in my experience, the common perception held by many native English speakers toward people whose English speaking skills are subpar is precisely that.
Having observed this, I took it very personally and trained and coached her to ultimately being fluent in the language where she was able to secure her Medical Assistant Certification and begin and thrive in a new career as a Cardiology Medical Assistant working for a giant U.S. Hospital Corporation (HCA).
This experience moved me, so I decided that helping others become confident and fluent in the English language was a calling I wanted to fulfill. So I transitioned from my long-tenured Corporate Financial Management Career into the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language. At the same time, my wife and I decided to relocate to her native country of Colombia.
I was very motivated and open to expanding my cultural horizons, having lived only in the U.S. for the first fifty years of my life. I began working for a large Chinese English Language Ed-Tech Company, where I worked with hundreds of Chinese Adult Professionals and Small Business Owners teaching Business English Communications online.
I began hearing similar frustrations from students of mine. These were non-native English speakers who worked for large English speaking based Multinational Corporations. They were experiencing high stress and frustration levels due to their inability to express themselves in the way they wanted to in meetings and conference calls with their corporate colleagues and management.
Thus they left meetings feeling defeated with lessened self-esteem and lower confidence. Another example was the case where students of mine who owned small businesses wanted to enter the U.S. market.
The insecurity often felt was low confidence in their ability to communicate effectively to gain customers. Another scenario was, Owners of small trading companies having great difficulty interfacing effectively when needed with their foreign English speaking trade partners causing frustration and inefficiency on the sides of both parties.
