Welcome to the City!

There is much to learn from the people here, as I'm sure we have to learn from you. Don't let your language stop you! Practice away!

You may say that language is your biggest issue, but it also might be your greatest asset, most all of us have had patients who didn't speak a lick of english and I don't speak anything but (except some spanish swear words). Being multi lingual will greatly increase your popularity in the field. I once kidnapped a volunteer at a school because as we were wheeling the patient who didn't speak any english out, she casually said "Hello" to my patient in vietnamese. She was stuck in the ER as a translator for I don't know how long.
