Ken a language strategy is mainly used for executives and staff working out of offices. When it comes to factory workers the languages they speak are normally used to keep them informed.

Having a language strategy does facilitate, doesn't it, Mina. And for now English is the best choice.

Used to boil that kind of tea for a while when I lived in London. It worked but was really a nuisance since you ha to devote a lot of time to it. Would much have preferred to take pills. Besides the tea didn't help.

Yep. Let's see what happens with that kind of apps. Do keep in mind that even when it comes to virtual teams you have to meet in person. When that takes place do you really think it's a good idea to use an app to communicate? Seriously only people who command a skill that is very unusual but essential for something will get away with that. Normal executives that don't command English or Mandarin, depending on what the leading language is, will simply not be in demand. There's inflation in education, remember:-)

Glad you agree, Welli.

William, the reason English is chosen is because of the dominance of first The British Empire and subsequently the United States. If English had not been chosen as the official language of the US it would not dominate the world today. As you know, German was almost chosen:-) Mandarin will long term become the next language because China will become the next super power. It's also questionable if America will remain a super power in the long run. Empires come and go and the US today display all the signs of an empire in decline.

Laurie, foreigners contributing to an organization is a different issue. By the way, the vast majority of such foreigners speak English. Am one of them but would not have been if I had not been able to speak English. Have worked with interpreters, and believe me, it's not great. Any company working globally has to have a language strategy. If not internal communication becomes a headache.

Glad you agree with me, Lenie. In thedistant future however, Mandarin will most likely be the language of choice.

Of course traffic controllers have a language strategy and it's English, Beth. But it facilitates for a company working globally to have one as well.

Of course it has, Time. But in the distant future Mandarin will most likely take over. You are young so it would be a good idea for you to learn Mandarin, if you have not already.
