Learn Hindi, Mandarin, says British trade leader

Quote:
Mathews told a European conference that businesses should look beyond traditional languages such as French and German, and start learning south Asian and far eastern tongues such as Hindi and Mandarin.

'As we all know, we now live and work in the global market, and whether we employ one or 20,000 people, we are affected by this market. Although English is the common commercial language throughout the world, on its own, it is not enough.

'Today, we in business have not only to be capable business people -- we also have to use the right tools for our business and language, without a doubt, is the main one. Not having a language skill, either individually or to support a business means we cannot be as successful as those that do.'

Not that any of this matters to us. It is what the locals do that counts.
