Indian and Foreign Languages

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, it goes to its head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.

Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa.

At Constellation, we train on several languages. We are a partner of CDA, Kolkata, who are an acclaimed institute of Foreign Language teaching in Eastern India. Along with Foreign Languages, we also train on a number of Indian languages.

We teach by CEFR Levels (Common European Framework of Reference for Language). The CEFR was put together by the Council of Europe as a way of standardising the levels of language exams in different regions. It is very widely used internationally, and can be upgraded and combined anywhere in the world. CEFR level exam certificates are widely used and recognized in Study Abroad and Work Abroad visa interviews.

There are six levels within the CEFR. With these levels, you can easily work out your ability in around 40 different languages. The levels are

A Level: Basic User

A1: Beginner

At A1 level, the learner can:

  • Understand and use very basic expressions
  • Introduce themselves and ask others questions about personal details
  • Interact in simple terms as long as the other person speaks slowly and clearly

A2: Elementary

At A2 level, the learner can:

  • Understand frequently used expressions in most intermediate areas such as shopping, family, employment, etc.
  • Complete tasks that are routine and involve a direct exchange of information
  • Describe matters of immediate need in simple terms

B Level: Independent User

At B1 level, the learner can:

  • Understand points regarding family, work, school or leisure-related topics
  • Deal with most travel situations in areas where the language is spoken
  • Create simple texts on topics of personal interest

  • Understand the main ideas of a complex text such as a technical piece related to their field.
  • Spontaneously interact without too much strain for either the learner or the native speaker.

We provide below a few compelling reasons for studying Foreign Languages.

  1. There is an increased movement of students abroad for pursuing their studies. In case the course is conducted in the language of the country, it is essential to learn the language. In case the course is conducted in English, the Universities may require the student to at least complete either Level A1 or Levels A1 and A2.
  2. The number of foreign companies investing in India and setting up offices is on the increase. It is helpful if the employee learns and can communicate in the language of the employer’s country.
  3. Employees may also need to undertake overseas trips for working or business discussions which is helpful if the employee knows the language.
  4. Business skills plus foreign language skills make an employee more valuable in the marketplace, hence in initial placement and career progression, the employee has an advantage.
  5. Knowledge of a foreign language helps in understanding and dealing with another culture which in turn enables people to gain a more profound understanding of their own culture.
  6. International travel is made easier and more pleasant through knowing a foreign language.
  7. Your marketable skills in the global economy are improved if you master another language.
  8. Foreign languages open the door to art, music, dance, fashion, cuisine, film, philosophy, science which enriches oneself as a person and professional
  9. Advanced training on Foreign Language can help find employment as a Foreign Language Trainer, Translator, Interpreter, and Foreign Language specialists in companies
