Living in a country where you have to speak a foreign language can cause serious social problems, as well as practical problems. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Residing in a foreign land where a new
language
is required from
one
can be very problematic. I totally agree with
this
because
language
is a crucial aspect of communication and as
such
is required in exchange of goods and services as well as in places of work. There will be issues in buying and selling.
This
means that even if

has sufficient fund for the wanted goods, there

barrier, business becomes difficult. Even when done, the foreigner feels cheated because of the inability to express himself.
For example
, in the 2002 Christians' pilgrimage to Jerusalem, it was reported that most Chinese Christians complained of exploitation in the markets.
This
was because, they paid whatever amount of money the seller showed them. They could not bargain as they could neither speak Hebrew, Arabic nor English.
Thus

poor communication causes marketing challenges.
In addition
, people feel discriminated because job seeking can be very difficult. Most works in foreign lands need
one
to be able to speak the
language
. People who are unable to do so may remain unemployed or get work
that is
below their qualification.
For instance
, non German speaking doctors cannot practice in Germany.
This
is because of the difficulty in conveying information between the physician and patients. Most end up working as cleaners where much communication is not necessary.
Therefore
, irrespective of

's academic degree, job satisfaction in a land where
