Last few job interviews that I went on were in my own home town. We have very crooked politics here, and a long history of vanishing public
records. I was told on all 4 interviews, that they (the potential employer) was very impressed with my resume, but that they felt that I was being
distracted by courthouse documents that I had in my possession. If I could be persuaded to sign affidavits that these documents were false then
perhaps they could find a place in their company for me. They also wanted me to turn over the original copies to be destroyed, otherwise I might find
myself unemployed in all 50 states......Imagine that! Needless to say, the answer was "NO!" and a few other choice words, and we parted ways.
So, be glad if all the employer asks you to do is learn another language. It is a annoying, and I think ridiculous because ENGLISH is a much more
complex language. It is the only language on Earth that is literally made up of all the other languages. ENGLISH is the "tongues." Count the
letters.......7. E1, N2, G3, L4, I5, S6, H7. If you know all the English language then you will basically know all the languages including the
ancient, and obsolete ones. No other language can claim that. The English Dictionary is volumesque. Our words are spoken in syllables, or we have
multiple words used to describe a single object. ENGLISH is slurred foreign languages, mixed together in the most magnificent of ways. There is no
language on Earth more interesting then ENGLISH, nor more complex. If you will study linguistics, not only will you enjoy English so much more, and
learn a multitude of foreign words, but you will be amused or shocked at how much English words are constantly misused by the general population, and
even public figures. It's funny, and yet scarey. The majority of our public figures are basically illiterate. If one of them misuses a word then
they all tend to do it.
