Do you think it is important to learn the language of the country you choose to live in? I know people who have lived in Canada for 20 to 30 years and barely speak a word of English. I just tried to call a client and he wasn't there. Whoever answered the phone barely had enough English to tak the message! I left a message with the same person last week and the client still hasn't called me. Maybe he didn't get the message. If I chose to live in a foreign country I would make an effort to learn the language (then again knowing my ability in languages, I wouldn't move anywhere where English wasn't the 1st language.).
