and show courtesy to all ..."
JUST FOR ONE DAY - WITH A NATURAL SPEAKER OR PARTNER OR GROUP - WITH FUN
Opportunity: for managers and staff members on short or long missions to other countries to feel more secure, comfortable and effective in achieving better working relationships in English, with local companies, governments, refugees, client and project staff, as they perceive YOUR effort to speak the local language with a good accent, and thus to show clearly a deep respect for THEIR local values and culture.

Make a start at this very moment ... do the CLE (above) ... again for five mnutes ... and then you decide ... about your old and new abilities ... remember ... new learning keeps you young ... in mind and body ...
