Business world has becoming global. In 2015, there will be ASEAN free market which will put more competition for companies in South East Asia countries. PT. Sinar Metrindo Perkasa (Simetri) sees this as an opportunity to grow the company. English is a well-established international business language. Learning English as a second language is becoming important for companies who want to expand their business further.
Starting from February 2013, Simetri organized an English language training for its employees to prepare its employees for a competition from foreign companies. The trainer, an English native speaker, taught the participants how to speak English in formal situation. The training is supposed to equip staffs with a better English skill, especially in spoken English. Simetri plans to organize more English language training for its employees in the future.
