LANGUAGE UPKEEP

It has been estimated that there are over a billion people in the world learning a foreign language.

There are literally thousands of schools helping these people get started.

A percentage, probably quite a small percentage, of this horde go on to have occupations quite outside the learning industry. They fly aeroplanes, become business executives, embassy staff, news reporters, military officers, have jobs in the tourist industries, go to sea as merchant navy officers, or organise international conferences.

Whatever it is they do, their main job is not learning languages but doing something constructive like running a chemical plant or designing buildings. A few times a year they go outside their own country and have to bring their language skills into use.

It is clear that there is a difficulty in keeping up with a language that one does not speak every day.To some extent television, radio and film can fill the gap but there is still a problem.

SMALL PIECES - A SORT OF "DRIP-FEED" FOR LANGUAGE

A "Script" is supplied to the customer once a month. It contains ten shortish paragraphs (= Small Pieces) for translation or for reading aloud or whatever.

Originally we had thought : "A month = 30 paragraphs !" - but experience has shown that this is far too much. Businessmen don't allot their time like students do - they have to slot stuff into busy timetables as and when.

An example of a script can be seen here

(You can also buy in bulk if you want to.)
