Because of this, if you aren’t able to read it easily, you’re cutting yourself off from a lot of really informative content.

For this reason, a lot of people with accents find it difficult to move up the corporate ladder. Because they are seen as not being good negotiators, or unable to make decisions, it makes things difficult for them.

To avoid miscommunication, you have to be able to speak English completely fluently. That is the first step in making sure that you are understood.
