NEW YORK, NY and FLORENCE, ITALY--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - BRIC Language Systems, the premier online language school and in translation services company, is highlighted in the seventh edition of the International Conference ICT for Language. BRIC Language Systems founder and CEO, Ryan McMunn, has recently had his academic paper, The Evolution from "Ignorant American" to "American Polyglot", published in the seventh edition. This edition was published Wednesday ahead of the actual conference in Florence, Italy.

McMunn is currently presenting his paper at the conference, which is held from November 13 - 14 in Florence. The conference includes a multitude of language experts including university professors, presidents, and linguistic professions. McMunn will speak about the radical change that is needed in the United States to help maintain competitiveness in the global business world. He points to companies like Rosetta Stone and Pimsleur as failures in the field as well as the US government. He will also speak about what he projects to be the solution: new technologies and entrepreneurial companies. These projections are the basis of McMunn's brainchild, BRIC Language Systems.

BRIC Language Systems offers a combination of these two characteristics. The language teaching method taught at BRIC Language is specialized for each different language, and also involves the use of smart technology. The courses have the option of being taught in person in the cities which has BRIC Language Systems office, or from anywhere with a stable internet connection. The company maintains its start-up roots, as it boasts nimble movements and adaptable tendencies as it competes against the big companies.

BRIC Language Systems has a track record of successful products, such as a well-received immersion program that gives students the opportunity to learn about both culture and language in two locations in China, one picturesque and remote, the other a bustling city; a remarkable partnership with one of China's top universities; and its upcoming Olympics products.

McMunn's paper, The Evolution from "Ignorant American" to "American Polyglot," is a thorough analysis of the current landscape of the general American population's language skills. To summarize the evaluation, the American people have a lot of work to do to become comparable to the rest of the world. The paper is a call to arms for language educators, as the main purpose is to highlight an issue to solve the problem.
