Most employment in South Africa requires that you have a good command of the English language. English is the language that is used in conducting business around the world and a person who cannot speak English is at a disadvantage. However, just reading the language may not be enough to secure you a position in the job market. You need to be able to speak the language correctly as well as read and write in English. You can improve your English reading and writing skills by enrolling in and Adult Basic Education and Training programme. This programme will also give you access to learning other skills that will be useful in the workplace.
