International Business Jobs - Helps speaking Chinese

Interesting article: Students Learn English Not Only Language for Jobs on jobs for those who are bilingual and a related article Forward-thinking students take foreign language to prepare for job search

Key Points:

1. Only 9% of Americans are Bilingual, but 50% of Europeans are.

2. There is a book out there Careers for Foreign Language Aficionados & Other Multilingual Types that is now in it's third edition.

3. There are many jobs out there where being bilingual is helpful and with the Internet it's easier to find those jobs.

Joke that I used in ESL Classes (students appreciate the humor):

1. What is Trilingual - Knows three languages
2. What is Bilingual - Knows two languages.
2. What is Monolingual - American
