In $7.6 trillion industry, English training is key

The tourism and hospitality industry contributes $7.6 trillion to the global economy every year and employs nearly 10% of the world’s working population. But within this vast industry, there are critical skill gaps preventing companies and employees from providing the highest level of service.

“Today we have a shortage of qualified employees,”explained Ghassan Aidi, President of the International Hotel and Restaurant Association (IHRA). “Hotels need to train their employees. It is the only way to improve the quality.”

But it’s not just hotels—tourism and hospitality includes countless other sub-industries that increasingly rely on English as the primary language to communicate with customers and coworkers. For tourism and hospitality professionals who interact with people from all around the world, being able to communicate in English is essential.
