Learn a Language

If you want to work in a foreign country you will need to speak the local language with some degree of proficiency. You can take a language course on-line or at a local university but there are several aids dedicated to second language speakers. We recommend products from Champs Elysses that are designed for native English language speakers who are learning French, German, Spanish or Italian.

If you are just getting started then language tapes are a great way to get started in your car or in the comfort of your own home. We recommend the following courses: Berlitz Language Tools on Amazon.com.
