Brussels - A Language Story

Listen in pop-out player

Chris Ledgard visits Brussels, a melting pot of European languages. He meets interpreters, language planners and voice coaches to discover how the European Commission operates "interpreting on an industrial scale." We find out why officials fear a looming shortage of interpreters, and we meet the man who teaches people how to speak and behave in a multilingual setting.
