He was told that he will be the primary contact with the company in China so we are debating foreign language again. We have debated between Hebrew, Mandarin Chinese and Portuguese for well over a year. We were selecting between those 3 languages, because they are of the most use potentially for work. Since his company has a Singapore office and he will be the China contact I think Chinese is our choice. Fortunalty they primarily speak English in Singapore, so it isn't necessary. It looks like we'll start Chinese next year.
