  Many Balinese are Multilingual
by Rinjani

With tourism booming in Bali since beginning of 1990, the island changes into international scene in many of its spots. So it¡¦s not much surprised to find many Balinese are fluent in English. But there are also many that multilingual, even in the villages. I found one villager spoke fluently in German, France and Japanese. Language is tricky. Sometimes we do it over and over again. We thought that our language is ¡¥foreign¡¦ enough to make other people clueless what we are talking about. But, in my experiences, it is simply wrong ƒº
