Always a pleasure, but also a challenge

Just back from a hectic series of sessions with a delegation from Jordan. Working with people from other nations and cultures is always a pleasure; you can learn so much, often through just having to rethink what you want to communicate so as to say it in words that your audience can truly understand and put into a context that works for them. So also a challenge on several levels.

I also have a huge admiration for those who are working in a second language. I’ve done it myself in France and Germany in particular and understand just how mentally draining it can be, so my hat is off to my new friends for their stamina over the 3 days of the training course that we helped put on for them at the British Council.
