How would you feel if your employer forced you to speak another language than your own at work? This is a question that Dorte Lønsmann, Associate Professor of Anthropological Linguistics at CBS, has tried to answer in her studies. She knows a lot about the issues that emerge when international employees are forced to speak Danish at their workplace, and vice versa with Danish employees who are forced to speak English. Listen to the podcast and become more aware about the social and personal consequences of having to speak foreign languages at work. Maybe you can relate to Dorte Lønsmann’s findings, and it might even make you smile. Press play and enjoy.
