How many languages should we learn in bussiness? which one we must have to learn?
We are communicating in Engish in this Forum, aren't we?! Is this happenning naturally or culturally? My opinion is that Business English is a reality well beyond the size and importance of Western economies today. Internationalization is more and more necessary in a global economy, and English communications are definitely a step ahead in this process. My education was bilingual Spanish-English (I'm Peruvian born), but I also see how important it is to keep the heritage of other local languages and understand the way they shape business practices.

As a trilingual or bilingual, what role does language play in the creation of your identity? Which language do you think in?
Language is a core component of self, and a means of communication with the outer world, although not necessarily conforming to all of its manifestations, cultural and ideological; then you discover that language begins to make you a citizen of the world, in dialogue with others, no matter how differently they may think: dialogue is the word, multilingual is the platform, accepting diversity is the attitude.
