Quite true.  But it seems far more likely that that person can speak
German than say, someone from a US based account.  It's hard enough to
get us speaking English properly, as is... ;-)

In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be 
_teachers_ and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, 
because passing civilization along from one generation to the next 
ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone 
could have.     - Lee Iacocca
