IT and English: progress easily with Cambly

In the field of IT, English is an essential language even when working for a company whose activity is located on French soil. Indeed, English is the language that takes precedence in computer science and it is enough to look at the terms used for programming languages ​​to be convinced of this. Add to that the documentation of the manufacturers and editors which is very often in English in its original version, and you will understand that English is not an option.

Starting from this constant, one can ask how to progress in English in order to reach a sufficient level? Since it’s back to school, some of you may be looking to improve your level of English to develop personally, or simply to take on a new personal challenge! Whether it’s to learn English or simply to improve, without it being an additional constraint to manage on a daily basis, know that there is Cambly: a 100% flexible platform that I am going to present to you today.

IT and English are linked!

Before telling you about the Cambly platform, I wanted to emphasize the importance of English when working in IT by listing a few situations in which English is useful:

  • Search for information, documentation (even if there is translation, it is sometimes imprecise)
  • Contacting the technical support of a software publisher, manufacturer, etc.
  • Preparation for an exam to obtain certification, because even if you can prepare with documentation in your mother tongue, the final exam will be in English
  • Learning a new programming language
  • Essential prerequisite for certain positions, because it is a very frequent criterion in job offers in this sector
  • Understanding of certain technical terms

Finally, since English is the reference language in the IT field, this pushes companies to produce content in English in order to be understood by as many people as possible. As a result, one can find more technical information in English than in French, or in any case a greater variety of resources. Incidentally, IT-Connect is there to provide you with quality content in French, because yes the French appreciate content in French. If we assume that English is the “default” language in IT, we can imagine that a French person will produce IT-related content in English, while the reverse is less obvious.

Between us, beyond finding an interest in learning English from a professional point of view, it is also very useful for people who like to travel!
