The European Commission has announced a recruitment for native English speakers, predicting a serious shortage of interpreters. The demand for mother-tongue English translators is fuelled by the fact that it has replaced French as the "lingua franca" of the EU's civil service. So anyone hunting for a job and luckily a native English speaker ,have a go ! good luck.

hi, tudors, as always, you are so active in posting discussions around here. it is sad that i am not qualified for the job since i am a filipino. i didn't know that it used to be french as the 'lingua franca' of the eu's civil service'. oh, i am never good at french. i have tried to study the language before but stopped on doing so as, i have no one around me to practice talking it with. the same story goes with my studies on spanish. i should be already armed with good oral communication and writing skills in this language if only i have somebody around who shares my love for the language. as for english, it came in easily as it is the medium of instruction here. so, if you come and pay some visit to our country, it shall be no suprise that almost everyone can understand and talk the english language.
