Dear Sir, I've completed my degree in 2010 and MBA Finance in 2012. I can't speak English. I didn't get any job so far. My friends suggest me to learn SAP FICO module so please suggest me how to overcome this problem. - Rampal

Generally many students/job seekers mistake Communication skill means having good English speaking capability. They are two different issues. It is all about holding conversation with anyone. Be it with the interviewer, boss or a stranger in the market with confidence and clarity, in a language that the other person is able to understand you. You can improve English on your own.

There is no need to join any spoken English teaching institutes. First speak in your mother tongue on the topic of your choice to a very close friend for two minutes or record it. Observe your performance and do it repeatedly. You can do this in front of mirror also. That’s how you can improve your communication.

To improve English language, read newspapers, watch English channels, etc. Then start speaking in English with your kin & kith, don't be shy. Observe carefully when others speak, how they use different words at different times. Take opinion of others who are good in English. Keep improving yourself through self learning.

In few months, you will definitely find a change in you. Coming to SAP, do not join any course just because of certification. When it comes to SAP FICO, it’s advisable to join such course after getting couple of years of experience in finance field only. You will not gain anything without having work experience. Better start your career in a startup company. Go through www.switchidea.com or www.letsintern.com to find relevant opportunity for you.
