Yesterday i spent 5 hours installing hardware for a client in Brazil. And because they couldn’t speak good English, I went an extra mile by using my spanish. It was great fun, although of course the client was speaking portuguese so it was a bit difficult at times. But the important thing is: there will be situations where English is not enough. I strongly encourage anyone to learn at least one language extra because first it’s great fun , second, learning e.g. German will get you a sizeable salary boost because there are a lot of projects being transferred. Do some research and find out learning which language pays off well and start learning… now 🙂 not next Monday, not next month. Do something now.
