Not only is it a basic courtesy to endeavour to speak the language of the country where you're living, it's also very useful in business - if you want to be successful, communication is key.

Richard Barnes is Deputy Mayor of London, Boris Johnson's right hand man. Dipping into all of the Scandinavian languages, he speaks fluent Norwegian, French and loves languages.
