“Why do you speak so many languages?”. This particular question I get a lot. I get it at job interviews (naturally), parties, social networks, at work and when I stumble into a fellow traveler on a train or plane to places unknown. The answer is always different in length and content. It is never extensive enough… And this is why I decided to blog about it, and refer the curious minds to it should they want to dig deeper than hearing the elevator pitch.
Part of the “being social” exercise is to communicate in a language your target audience is able to understand and engage in. For most of my followers it is English, but there are also small clusters of users and topics that need another linguistic approach – one that is part of their conversational sub-environment.
