In the study out of Florida International University (FIU) in Miami, participants listened to audio recordings of three native Spanish speakers from Barcelona, Spain; Bogota, Colombia and Havana, Cuba and rated the accents for different attributes tied to income, profession and family background.
 
There are studies that show how our behaviour changes according to the language we speak. 
 
Interpreter Training Boston advocates for the highest level of certification for all professional interpreters.

Before we can identify ourselves as professional translators, interpreters, managers, administrators, professors, business owners or any other designation we may have, we are human beings with the same needs and wants.
 
We need to take care of ourselves, be happy and fulfilled to be able to do a good job and accomplish what we desire in life.

Increase Your Social Skills
We are social beings. Relationships are the currency of life. But we are never formally taught how to form strong connections and thrive socially. The follow strategies will make you a pro in social situations.
 
Energy is Contagious 
When someone in a social setting is high energy, people are naturally drawn to that person. Next time you're in a social setting, raise your energy by 10%. This may make you feel uncomfortable, but the more you do it, the more natural it will become. It will highlight more of your personality and make you instantly more likeable.
 
Listen More than You Speak
No one wants to listen to the person that can't stop talking. When you listen to others, it shows that you genuinely care. People will be more inclined to engage with you because they feel like you're interested in what they have to say.
 
Find Common Ground
The most important part when building rapport with someone or a group of people is finding common ground. Interests, passions, careers, or anything you can find in which you can relate to the person will build instant connection. 
  
Give Compliments 
Have you ever met someone who is everyone's biggest Fan? They are instantly the life of any social situation. When you give someone a genuine compliment, they are naturally inclined to like you. Be everyone's biggest fan - it makes any social setting feel great!
 
Whether you want to build more confidence, put yourself out there, or just build more meaningful relationships, these skills implemented every day will raise the bar in your level of social connections and ultimately make you a social master!
