Scope & Career in Foreign Languages

Of all the reasons for learning a foreign language, career and job opportunities are the most important factor. How? Read along.

Career in foreign languages

There are plenty of good reasons to learn a foreign language in India.

Of all the people I’ve surveyed, met, taught, and listened to over fourteen years, a career is the most decisive factor people choose to study a new language.


Languages are the central theme of communication in every aspect of human endeavor–be it in the social, economic, and political sphere.

With modern-day Indians emerging as a global player in the socio-economic scheme of things, it has become needful for every individual to be well equipped.

The ability to maintain parity with the rest of the world’s multinational and international players is mission-critical. And one can accomplish this through the rudiments of communication, which lies in the invaluable process of using multiple languages.

Gone are the days of relying on one’s native language in communicating with people, especially in business dealings.

The innovative advent of modern technology has made the world a global village. Now, the language barrier has to be broken more than ever.

To remain competitive and increase your career opportunity and job prospect, you have to communicate smoothly to pave the way for unfettered business connection flows.

And here is where learning a new language becomes the latest trend in India and offers careers in foreign languages.

Why Learning Foreign Languages is Important in India?

Career Options in Foreign Languages

People don’t jump on the bandwagon of learning foreign languages in India for the fun of it.

There has been a steady increase in business interrelationship, accelerating globally at an unprecedented rate. Indian companies and entrepreneurs operating in the country is no different.

Companies like Amazon, Infosys, Samsung, TCS, HCL, LG, L&T, IBM, Genpact, Fujitsu Technology, Accenture, and Geometric Ltd, among others, are now evaluating employees based on their foreign language proficiency.

Some of the significant incentives to know additional foreign languages involve on-site options and more job openings across various industries.

It also increases the salary level compared to regular graduates, ease of doing business with counterparts, and other stakeholders based outside the country’s shores.

If you are looking to earn extra cash from your peers, learn a foreign language.

For instance, a recent advertisement was published on LinkedIn by IBM, stating: “A core developer is needed, with proficiency in French.”

Imagine if a renowned tech giant like IBM emphasizes a foreign language as a prerequisite for equally important employment.

It speaks volumes on the importance of learning foreign languages. And that is why so many Indians these days are taking foreign language classes.

Following the exploitation of globalization, knowing just the mother tongue is no longer enough.

Your engineering degree or MBA may no longer earn as much cash as a foreign language, especially Mandarin, German, Russian, Japanese, Spanish, or French.

The entire business environment is driven by a massive requirement for foreign language experts, translators, trainers, and software developers.

To compete competitively and stand a better chance of realizing your career dream, you have to see the importance of learning a foreign language.

The Career Mindset

There are several benefits to learning foreign languages. However, the career scope is the most inspiring reason why so many students are interested in that.

We came to discover that there are two main primary categories of people learning foreign languages. These are;

1. People learning a foreign language because it offers them a better career opportunity to gain employment.

2. People start studying a language because of personal reasons. It includes migrating to other countries, hobbies, traveling, peer group influence, or accessing music, movie, and literature in different languages.

At some point, they decided it’s a good idea to use what they have learned to start a career or further the objectives of an existing profession.

These two classes of reasons can be referred to as “extrinsic and intrinsic” inspiration for foreign language learning.

About 200 Chinese firms are doing business in India alone, and about 5,000 Japanese firms operate here.

More than 2,00,000 people with proficiency in various languages are required for employment opportunities in India.

Furthermore, the demand for bilingual credibility increases, ranging more than 20% each year.

Career in Foreign Languages

foreign language careers

There are many foreign languages available for you to learn. However, there are many factors to consider when choosing the right language to learn.

The five leading foreign language in India for studies are Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese.

These languages are regarded as the most sought-after for career prospects, employment opportunities, and immigration.

However, other foreign languages in India are gaining increasing attention from Indian individuals at home and abroad.

These are Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Arabic, Italian, Persian, Korean, and others.

Job Opportunities After Learning Foreign Languages

Academic qualifications and adequate proficiency in foreign languages is the key that opens a more large-scale door for a career in vital sectors.

It includes tourism, diplomatic services, embassies, journalism, mass communication, public relations, entertainment, arts, publishing, interpretation and translation, and federal and international organizations.

It also affords the opportunity of working with multinationals corporations (MNCs) and specialized governmental agencies.

India is the third fastest-growing economy in the world.

India’s high expectations will expand the business and bilateral trade links with many countries in Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Asia in the coming years.

A process that is already in full swing today.

The country seeks to diversify from reliance on traditional markets, like the USA and Europe, in the global economic slowdown.

Thousands of Indian firms are now becoming more proactive—re-strategizing their business outlook across all sectors.

The majority of the Indian businesses are now seeking new business opportunities in Manufacturing, IT, KPO, BPO, Pharmaceuticals, Hospitality, Healthcare, Education, Media, BFSI, and more.

While many of these new markets can boast essential consumption patterns, English may not be the primary language of transition and conversion in these markets.

Thus, knowing a local language in any of these non-English speaking countries is becoming an indispensable factor for Indian firms seeking to do business abroad.

These firms need to improve their business. The only way is to hire personnel with knowledge of the foreign language where their business interest lies.

That explains the continuous rise in demand for employees with foreign language credentials by Indian companies. This exists in trading overseas and non-Indian businesses operating in the country.

Below are some other pros of learning foreign languages.

1. Become a Translator, Interpreter, or Teacher

With your knowledge of a foreign language, you can work as a translator or interpreter for a company. Besides, you can also work as an independent freelancer as a language expert.

There are so many opportunities for translators and interpreters in India these days. Thanks to the increasing entry of foreign firms and large-scale projects outsourcing to Indian companies by their European and American counterparts.

Acting as an interpreter or a translator can be very lucrative, depending on how experienced you are. You can also work for Media houses, Tourist centers, sports clubs, or any international company, and so on.

Translator and interpreter as a career option are pretty popular among students pursuing language courses thanks to many job opportunities.

There are also career opportunities for editor, proofreader, content writer, teacher, lecturer, and corporate language trainer.

The possibilities are just infinite.

2. Work for the Immigration / Custom Services

It is one area in which you can flourish handsomely with your knowledge of a foreign language.

Language Jobs in the embassy or Government agencies such as the immigration and customs departments will find your resume attractive due to your foreign language skills.

Imagine you qualify as e Spanish specialist. The government is out looking for personnel to fill various positions in the nation’s embassies.

It can be in any Spanish-speaking territories like Latin America and Spain itself. As a result, your resume will receive priority, among others, ahead of others who don’t have such a qualification.

Moreover, if you decide to travel or do business in places like Spain or Latin America, your Spanish knowledge would open up doors of opportunity for you.

It will also enable you to have an equal playing and negotiation dealing with business partners and prospects.

3. Jobs in MNC, KPO, BPO, & IT

ITES (Information Technology Enabled Service), the offshoring industry, and Outsourcing have brought many job possibilities paving the way for learning foreign languages in India.

Adding it to your CV is a surefire way to get a decent job in BPO and MNC.

Jobs could involve speaking skills, collecting information, working on documents in the corresponding language, voice-based employment, training, and transaction. Other works like data processing, migration processes, quality management, email support services, etc.

Indian companies have great expertise in providing a wide range of BPO and KPO services across various verticals.

Multilingual call center services are offered to multiple offshore companies in the financial, telecom, medical, insurance, and banking sectors.

Today, there is a high career demand for experts in foreign languages in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, and other parts of the country.

The minimum salary range with 0-2 years of experience or Freshers is between 3.5 to 6 lakhs per annum.

Foreign language expert salary is generally 25% to 40% higher than their English speaking counterparts.

4. Hospitality, Travel & Tourism

There is never a time when people don’t move.

There is always an exodus of people from different nations to other countries, especially during the holidays and winter seasons.

Millions of people visit India as tourists from year to year. However, most of them do not speak English nor understand the local Indian.

Attraction centers, shopping malls, 3, 4, and 5-stars hotels & suites need workers that can communicate fluently with these thousands of visitors that patronize their businesses from time to time.

With your knowledge in a foreign language, you might be the customer service staff they need.

Your multilingual credentials can get you hired just about anywhere that has to do with clients and foreign-origin customers.

There are plenty of career choices in Tourism for language learners.

5. Reap big from Import & Export Sector

The world has become smaller and smaller due to its digitized global economy.

These have opened up an enormous opportunity in businesses involving various forms of importation and exportation.

The majority of the more substantial corporations in India now prefer to hire people who can speak new or more foreign languages other than their native language.

For example, your Chinese knowledge will open up a career opportunity to export goods or services from India to China. You also get to deal with companies in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mongolia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand.

These are the places where the language is spoken as a first or second language.

Employers who engage in the export and import business with these countries will find your expertise in Mandarin a massive plus for their businesses.

On the other hand, you might decide to go solo by doing business with corporations in the places mentioned above — acting as their rep here in India.

It is a win-win situation for you at any time and in any location.

Final Thought

The career scope of foreign languages is on the rise. The trend will continue until the “alien take over” is complete (pardon my pun).

Now that you have known what career reasons and benefits await you out there in the corporate world.

Why don’t you start a class in one of the languages mentioned in this article?

Don’t forget. You can’t lose out on knowing one or more foreign languages; you will always end up winning.

LanguageNext offers a wide range of French, Spanish, and Foreign language courses in Noida.

      There is no best language, and the choice of language is pretty subjective. This is something only you can decide. I do not recommend a particular language for general purpose as all top ones are useful in one way or another.

        1. Vikash Gupta

          There is no particular language that would be best for your career. Instead, pick one of the widespread and in-demand languages. If you are looking for relatively easier option, go with an European language.

Is there a scope to this? Please help me.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      The scope exists, but limited job opportunities to my knowledge. Plus, it will take a few years of study (like 3-5 years). Irrespective of whether it would be worth or not, you need to weigh the pros and cons.

        I am Shivam from India. I want to be a navigation officer on a cruise/cargo ship in the near future. So I have to study a nautical science course related to my field. I would like to study my course in that language of the country where job opportunity is high, the tuition fee is low, good social life, nice people, less crime rate & low taxation, etc.

        I am a little bit confused between Spanish and German. Could you please answer me in choosing the language which suits best to my career?

        1. Vikash Gupta

          It would not be easy to guide you to something specific with many possibilities. I’d suggest finding a consultant dealing with overseas study, job, or immigration. Or someone experienced in that field. They will help you pick the suitable country and courses as per your situation, goal, and budget.

          And once decided, you can choose the language where you plan to go or something that can be more valuable!

      Mandarin could be more valuable than the two languages you mentioned. Learn it till advanced level so that you can engage with the language properly. As a hobby, you can always learn whatever interests you!

    As you are much experienced in the term of foreign languages, could you please help me out choose the language which suits best my experience and field?
    Have a great day

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Although both are beneficial, French might give you an edge in your export-import field. This is because it is helpful in nearly 20 countries compared to German, which is popular in a few.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      There are too many factors, and it isn’t easy to answer in a few lines. For that, you need to hire a career counselor as it requires time, lots of discussions, and personalized advice. We also have a language career guidance service.

      No. Diplomas and degrees aren’t the same, and there is some major difference. You can choose a diploma or any authorized certification from any educational institution. There are 100’s of options where you can learn a language of your choice. If you can tell me a specific language and your location, I might suggest you some choices.

Also, can I get work as an English teacher in Japan if I learn English as well or the native speakers of English-speaking countries will be preferred over me?

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Avoid IGNOU. Try some good private institutes or even regular courses from Government colleges. The scope of this combination is pretty limited, and Japanese prefer native English speakers over those whose mother tongue isn’t English.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      You can make a career by pursuing a major in a particular language. However, if you want to minimize the risk and diversify the career horizon, you can go with a combination – a degree program in the subject of your choice and a part-time Spanish course. You can decide the choice of the subject depending on your goal, strength, and interest.

      Both kinds of jobs exist — Japanese-based employment and work that requires a combination. If you want to take less risk, combine Japanese with job-oriented studies. Means, add more skills, but that is something you have to decide based on your goal.

I really wanna study the Korean language in Mumbai but I cannot find any good institute if you know any please let me know. And lastly, the admissions are not yet open of any foreign language institute i mean admission for 2021 students will be open after board result right?

    1. Vikash Gupta

      For a career after the 12th, you can choose either BA in a particular language or a graduation in any stream along with a long-term part-time language course. There is no known good option to learn Korean in Mumbai. Mumbai University and other universities will start the admission process shortly, and you can take admission at private institutes anytime.

      It would be better to consider 2-year PGDM or MBA. A diploma helps, but not as much compared to a master’s program. If in case it is not feasible, then you can consider the diploma. It will be beneficial to some extent.

      Hi Diksha,

      Both German and Korean are good choices if your aim is freelance jobs. Unfortunately, a short-term certificate course won’t help you achieve the knowledge required for such work. It will take 2-3 years, or possibly more, depending on your learning approach and what you want to do with the language.

    Hello Sir,
    Firstly I would like to thank you for such an amazing article, it is pretty helpful. I am 18 years old and studying BBA-IB at MES Garware College, Pune. I am also doing a German lang certificate course from SPPU which covers my A1 level. I also plan to complete all the levels. I want to pursue my further education and my job abroad. Can you suggest to me which additional language I should learn and which country I should take into consideration for further career prospects?
    Thank you,
    Regards, Rutuja.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Thanks, I’m glad it helped you!

      With so many countries and their different languages, it is difficult to suggest something particular. Probably, first, you can decide on the course and then choose the colleges. Then, it will be easier to choose the country, and the language is spoken there.

      Hi sir, my name is Aruna from Tamil Nadu. I did my MBA degree and now am interested to learn German and Japanese. So can you please suggest the most demand language and also the highest-paid language in India.

      1. Vikash Gupta

        Both are quite popular and offer plenty of job possibilities. The salary depends on your job profile and not only on the language. East Asian languages like Japanese experts are usually paid more, but they are also a bit harder to learn.

    Hi sir, I am 23 yrs now, and work in bookmycargo. Side by side, I am learning A1 level Spanish from a Pvt institute, WORLD language center, Pitampura, New Delhi. But I am confused that gov. Colleges complete this course in max of 3 to 4 years, but this institute complete it in 1 year. How is this possible? I don’t understand. I have already submitted the full A1 level fees. Please suggest to me, sir, because I want to sparkle my future.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      I never heard about this institute. So, I can’t comment on quality. It isn’t fair to compare Pvt institute courses with Gov colleges because universities program runs on slow speed, and their curriculum lacks listening and speaking sessions. Usually, it takes two years to achieve DELE B2. If that is what they are claiming to complete in just one year, then it looks a bit difficult. But then, I’m unsure about that center.

      Since you have already paid for 1st level, continue with that, and based on your experience, you can later go with reputed names like Instituto Cervantes or Instituto Hispania. You might have to take an oriented test for direct lateral entry.

    Hi sir, Pratibha here. I am an ENTC (electronics&telecommunication) engineer. I am working as a network engineer. Can you suggest which foreign language I should learn or have scope for my field right now? I also want to know that if I have difficulties in the English language, this creates any barrier for me?

    1. Vikash Gupta

      If you can write this, it means your English is at least at a moderate level, which is good enough to learn any language. In fact, one doesn’t need English at all, but many Indian teachers use English as a source language to explain all nitty-gritty of the language. Thus, some intermediate level is expected. The choice of language is pretty subjective. For engineers, French, German, and Japanese are quite popular. Spanish is a bit easier and also useful in various industries.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Yes, it can be beneficial in your career. For job prospects, you can read some of my articles related to these two languages. No, a certificate is not enough. You need at least a 3-year Advanced Diploma, or JLPT N3/N2 (Japanese) / TOPIK Level IV/V (Korean) if you’re studying at any private institute. This will easily take a few years, depending on your engagement with one of these languages.

    Sir, I am 21 years old. I have completed my B.B.A. this year and have already started the A1 course in French. I will further complete it until B2 at least. Please suggest to me how will I apply for MNC’s, KPO, BPO, etc. related organizations. I am a bit stressed about my future. Will I get a good job by considering the B.B.A. and French combination?

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Since you have already completed BBA, I’d recommend going for an MBA too. While a combination of BBA and B2 French can help you get jobs in various MNCs, but a master’s degree will further enhance your career prospects. You can make a profile and upload it on various job sites and LinkedIn. You can try to build your contacts and also send your resumes to various organizations. Initially, you can focus to get some experience that can help you climb the career ladder. Good luck, Srishti!

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Japanese usually offer a better paycheck than Spanish. However, it is also one of the most difficult languages to learn. If you can devout for 3+ years, you can consider that. If you have limited time, say 1-3 years, Spanish would be a better choice!

    Hello. I am 38, done my BA in English literature, and worked mostly from home as a Medical Transcriptionist for 18 years. I would like to learn a new language and pursue my career in that. I have the interest to learn Japanese or Spanish/French presently, but I am confused about which language to learn.

    I have a few questions. If I can learn online and work from home how much time and until what level would I need to learn? Secondly, if I would like to pursue work abroad, what level of learning will I need? Also, with my degree and learning where can I work depending on the present situation, and will there be any age limit? I am living in Bangalore, and which is the best institute to learn a foreign language, or is online learning better? Would much appreciate it if you would please guide me.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      As I always say, the choice of language is quite subjective. Between three, Japanese is the hardest one, and Spanish is relatively simple. Career-wise, all 3 are fabulous options.

      If your goal is jobs requiring languages, I’d say aim for the upper-intermediate levels like JLPT N2 (Japanese), or B2 (French or Spanish). While the duration depends on multiple factors like your learning approach and target language, but usually takes 2-4 years.

      You can start learning through online mode, but once you complete the beginners’ level, I’d suggest joining any educational institutions for offline classes. There is no age restriction. To get overseas jobs, you need a great combination and relevant experience. I don’t know much about your existing field.

      In Bangalore, French – Alliance Française, Spanish – Instituto Hispania, and Japanese – Sakuraa, Navis, and Sayuri are some good choices. Good Luck!

      Difficult as most companies ask for certification. The recognized certification helps candidates to move to the next round of interviews. Without that, it will be hard to assess the proficiency level of the candidates. But one can gain by appearing for one of the international exams.

I have really interested in Mandarin, but my friends told me now learning the Chinese language is not a good choice because India – China relation is not good at this time, but sir is the situation not always going on. Please, sir, tell me the Mandarin language is better for learning. Will, there be job opportunities in the Chinese language in the future or Japanese is better for me as a future career for Indians. I really need your advice on which language is the best Chinese or Japanese.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      The choice of language is quite subjective. Pick the one as per your understanding. The current situation is undoubtedly not good between India-China, but difficult to predict the long term outlook. The impact might decline in long run, but this is just my guess! Plus, some opportunities will always exist, irrespective of bilateral relations between the two nations. To sum up, if you are interested and willing to take some risk, go with Mandarin. Otherwise, pick Japanese! It is the most popular East Asia language in India.

          Yes, Colleges like St. Stephens, Daulat Ram, and Ramjas are good options. But do remember, it will take 3 years to complete the Advanced Diploma. If you go with the private institutions, do take the HSK test to gain international certification.

          2. Vikash Gupta

            It depends on the institute and the College. Both have their owns pros and cons. For example, Colleges take more time, but the price is affordable. On the other hand, The quality of teaching at some reputed private institutes are better, but fees are also high. While you won’t get an advanced Diploma, but that can be easily compensated by appearing for the HSK exam.

      I always use to think that a career as a Dentist is good. But, if you wish to learn a foreign language, you can pick one of the popular and no so hard languages. French, German, and Spanish are three great choices.

      Alliance Française in Baroda teaches French from Beginners to Advanced level. You can also search for German or Spanish courses in nearby private institutes. I’m sure you will find some opportunities there in the future. Good luck!

      There is no best language. It all depends on individual perspective and specific goal. For example, French is an added advantage in Canada, whereas German plays a vital role in central Europe. Then in the Southern United States, Central and South America, Spanish matters. Think about the benefits associated with some of the popular languages, and pick the one as per your understanding. And, yes, German is also a great choice.

After finishing it, I got a job in MNC as a chatting executive with Canadians. After working for 9 months over there I have been selected as Postal Assistant in India post. I couldn’t decide whether to join it or not, but my friends and family members forced me to join the postal dept as it’s a central govt job.

    Now the problem arises. I feel regret after joining this, and I didn’t really like the work and administration here and also I could not go back. Now, I started learning Japanese. Could you please suggest to me whether I could get a good amount of salary with N3 or should I continue in Postal dept or should I do more. Kindly clarify me with a kind heart.

      ‘A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush.’ I’d recommend continuing with your current job, and simultaneously learn Japanese to achieve N2/N1 in next few years. In the future, if you find great opportunities involving languages, you can consider quitting your existing job, or you can also work as a part-time Freelance with your language skills.

          This is the most difficult and frequently asked question I get. Sadly, there is no perfect language that suits all. You can make a career as a teacher or translator literally in any of the top 10/15 languages. The choice of the language is totally subjective and depends on multiple factors like your language learning ability, duration, interest, location, and goal. I’d suggest reading several language-related articles over the next few weeks, and then take the decision that fits your understanding.

    Hi sir. I’m Nitin. I’m pursuing IT. I’m learning the Japanese language as an academic subject. Other than that, my college provides a course by Japanese foundation for a fee. Now I’m thinking, is it useful to pay the fees and complete a course offered by that foundation, or else shall I stop only with the language only as an academic subject?

    Does the Japanese language is considered as only an added advantage? Or does it play a major role in placements? Just learning N5 and N4 will get me a job? Could you tell me about other various applications of the language in engineering and technology, sir?

    1. Vikash Gupta

      If you’re intrigued by the Japanese language, you can take the beginner’s level. It won’t make a significant difference as far as placement is concerned, but can add some value to your CV.

      The N5 and N4 are JLPT exams, and you will get the certification once you pass the exam. Later, as per your interest, you can continue until N2/N1 and make a full-fledged career as a Japanese specialist in any industry, including engineering and IT.

        1. Vikash Gupta

          Of so many choices and reasons, it is nearly impossible to suggest “one” particular language. What works for someone may not work for you. A vast majority quit learning Mandarin within a year because it is too tricky despite great career possibilities. Similarly, many don’t feel like studying Italian due to insufficient opportunities, but I believe it is one of the most beautiful languages, and that is a convincing reason, at least for me. The most important reason to learn any language should be interest or a specific goal. If you don’t have, read more until you find one. Perhaps, this can help you — How to Choose a Language to Learn.

      You can get a job, but it depends on your engagement with the German language and place you’re living. You can try for regular classes at any reputed institution. So, you learn correctly and earn a certification in the end. You can also consider the Goethe-Zertifikat exam. Many schools also demand a B.Ed degree. For translation work, you need a higher level of proficiency. Keep al these in mind before start learning German.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Translation and Interpretation is just one possibility for language learners. There are infinite opportunities in a variety of industries. Translating technology is, indeed, becoming more powerful. However, machine translations can never replace human translation. The machine cannot translate accurately when words or phrases have multiple meanings, and when it depends on the context to know what is meant.

      Then we have things such as idioms, tone, proverbs, and varieties. For high accuracy, human translators are required, and this is not going to change anytime soon.

    I am a Graduate in English (Hons), and I wish to carry on my studies taking a foreign language as a subject like Japanese or Korean. I wish to aspire to a good career, in the long run, taking these subjects. What should I do regarding the courses? Please help.
    Thank you, sir.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Firstly, you can choose which language you wish to begin. Once you have decided, and depending on your location, you can enroll in one of the learning centers to complete at least an upper-intermediate course. Then to gauge your level, you can appear for international language tests like TOPIK or JLPT. You’ll find plenty of employment possibilities across India.

    I have a Bachelor’s degree in Arts and a Diploma in GDT. I’ve studied optional French for four years in college (2 years in PU and 2 years in the University). I also started learning Spanish at home for the fun of it. Is the degree enough to get me an entry-level job? Should I go for a Diploma/ a Certificate course or apply for a higher degree in these languages?

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Sorry, I didn’t get you. If you wish to work based on languages, then you have to consider an Advanced Diploma or B1/B2 in languages. Optional French and some knowledge of Spanish are usually not that helpful in the job hunt.

      You can study German part-time, but the same is not possible with an MBA. Thus, a Full-time MBA in in-demand specialization from a reputed University along with a part-time German course is an excellent combination.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Between three, German is the closest to English since both belong to the family of Germanic languages. On the other hand, French and Spanish are part of the Romance group. Yes, French is the most popular language as far as teaching is concerned.

      While it is possible to learn two languages at the same time, I, however, don’t recommend that. The danger of confusing them would be too great. Expanding yourself thin is another way of not providing each language the attention it deserves. You can achieve the Lower/Upper Intermediate level in 2 years. Thus, two languages in 4 years are a realistic approach.

      If you want to make a career as a French expert, why to pursue BCA? Why not BA in French, and after that you will get direct admission in MA in French. Simple, Effective and Affordable. To be eligible for high-paying French specialist jobs in a highly competitive job market, one needs a higher proficiency level which might take 3-5 years. If you have to do BCA for some reason, then my advice is to concentrate on that only. When the time will come, you can nibble about French.

    Sir according to you Italian has not much scope as other foreign languages have.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      The DU’s Arts faculty is one of the rare Indian University with BA, MA, Ph.D. in the Italian program. Even prominent universities like JNU, BHU, EFL, MU, PU, VBU, and many more do not offer a similar course. Similarly, Arabic, Tibetan, Persian are offered by over 20 Universities. These things have nothing to do with the career scope.

      If you have the interest, you should learn Italian. While job opportunities are limited but the number of people learning Italian in India is significantly lower compared to other popular foreign languages.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Hi Neelima,

      Few Points:- (i) These days B1 is not enough to get any decent-paying jobs. Aim for at least B2 if not C1. (ii) While Experience is a prerequisite in nearly every professional career, you can still find many entry-level jobs that don’t need any experience. (iii) The experience in BPO, KPO, and ITES might not help in your teaching career. Job reputation is a quite subjective thing. (iv) Getting a job in an embassy is difficult. You may need other in-demand qualifications like MBA, experience, and contacts. German is just an added advantage.

      Think about learning German and not career or monetary gain. Most people achieve a higher level because of interest and once you learn it properly, you will surely find something good enough.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      DU does not conduct any DELE B2 classes. The University offers Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma. If you’re doing a Diploma in Spanish (which is not equivalent to B2), then you can continue with Advanced Diploma. After completing that, you can try for DELE B2 or C1 exam.

      Additionally, there is also an option to appear for the entrance test for MA in Spanish from DU’s Arts faculty (Dept. of GRS) or JNU. If you’re concerned about the future, you can add more skills to enhance your career prospects.

      Firstly, you have to pick a language.

      The entire article is full of job options in foreign languages. These days, foreign language skills are required in several sectors. You don’t need to know a foreign language to be eligible for the IFS or diplomat, although you will have to learn one Compulsory Foreign Language (CFL) during your training after you’ve been selected. If you secure a high rank in the civil services, then you can choose IFS and decide which language you want to learn. Prior knowledge in a foreign language is not required.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      Demand on what sense? Spanish offers more entry-level KPO/BPO Jobs and it is quite easy to learn for English speakers. It is also more useful in the USA, Central & South America. Thus, if you don’t want to take the risk and want to learn a language with a decent opportunity in 2 years – Spanish is the right choice.

      On the other hand, the Japanese offer more high-paying jobs provided that you are ready to study for the next 3-4 years. Japanese is also more useful in the field of engineering, multimedia, electronics, etc. People also learn as a hobby since the Japanese offer a unique learning experience. I like both that is why I have studied both.

    1. Vikash Gupta

      You can choose between French, Spanish, and Japanese. All 3 offer plenty of career opportunities. Between 3 – Spanish is the easiest one and the Japanese is the most difficult one.

          While learning a language is a good thing. I’m not sure changing your career after 20 years of experience is the right thing to do. I believe success comes from experience. In the end, only you can decide. Since east Asian language will take a long time to master. Thus, you can pick between French, Spanish or German. All three are equally popular from a career perspective.

          Whatever you decide, aim for high-level proficiency like B2. For French – One of the 7 centres of Alliance Française, German – Goethe-Institut, and Spanish – Hispanic Horizons or Academia De Español or Instituto Hispania in Mumbai. Read — Language Courses in Mumbai

        Sir, I’m 20 from Mumbai, and now I’m pursuing my engineering in electronics and telecommunication (present in 3rd year). So, I’m confused like after my graduation I don’t want to work as an engineer. So, I am quite interested in learning foreign languages, and after graduation in electronics, I want to learn the German language. Please would you suggest me the best institute in Mumbai for learning a language? And sir, if any suggestion for me, please, if I’m on the right track or not?
        Waiting for your concern.

          For German, you can consider Goethe-Institut Max Mueller Bhavan in Mumbai.

          A career shift should happen gradually over time and not merely based on liking and hearsay. A big decision like this shouldn’t be taken in a jiffy. I’d suggest continue in your field and try to get a job related to that after your Concurrently, you can learn German part-time. Based on the circumstances and opportunities, the shift will become apparent in time. You can then choose to act on them that will allow you to move ahead in whatever field suits you best. Good luck Shreya!
