Languages 'boost work and love'
People who speak foreign languages earn more and are popular with the opposite sex, a report suggests.

Est que c’est vrai?
Ich weiß nicht!
Does being multi-lingual help you tynnwch les femmes?

:)
When I worked in Luxembourg it was a real multi-lingual environment, we'd use words from several different languages in a single sentence without batting an eyelid.

Peace

So That Explains It

Ahh - so it's not being a fat techy geek that's failing me - it's that I can't speak a foreign language...

Maybe I should quit all the diet and excercise, and concentrate on evening classes in Italian...

Ahh, there's the mystery that makes respect of so long life, as Hamlet was known to mutter :)

I should take you out for a meal sometime, but right now I'm hardly around London at all :( I clocked up 94 hours overtime last month and was at work for 12 hours yesterday trying to find a bug in my program ... and I still haven't found it.

What sort of jobs are you looking for? Quite often it's "experience" that is the deciding factor - once you've done something for a while then it's easier to get other jobs.

Good luck
(hugs)
