A long time ago, I went to work for a company in New York City that wanted to hire a remote workman.
I was hired on the condition that I stay for two weeks to train the job-seeker in a language that I had never spoken.
When I got home from work, I told my husband that I would take the job, but that I was worried about the language barrier.
After a while, I asked him if he had ever used a language other than English in his career.
He said he had.
It turns out, it was a good fit.
My husband and I are now happily married and have two kids.
In New York, the language is the language of the job.
The job market is more competitive now than ever.
At my first job, the company had two languages spoken at the same time.
Our language of choice was Russian, which has more than 100 million speakers in the country.
We were hired to translate and read a brochure for an agency.
This brochure was in English, so I had to speak it in Russian.
That didn’t bother me, because my job was not to speak Russian.
I was doing it because it was the only language I knew.
There were several other languages we could speak, but English was the language I spoke most often.
As I got to work, the supervisor gave me a briefing in Russian and told me to read the brochure in Russian, too.
Once the job was done, I sat down with my wife and the children, and we translated it in English.
To make the job more interesting, we had to learn Russian as well.
What happened next is a story that would change my life.
I learned a lot in the process, and I became an expert in Russian language learning.
Now I can say that it was never my intention to speak a language, but I am proud to say that I got my Russian-speaking job.
In fact, I learned more Russian in a day than I did in all my years of working for a large, multinational company.
