If, in your presence, two (or more) people are speaking to each other in another language that you dont understand, are you offended or insulted? For example, in my department, we have two people from China. At times, when they are engaged in a non-work related conversation, they speak to each in Chinese. We also have a couple of people from Israel, same thing, sometimes they converse in Hebrew. I have an administrative assistant who is offended when someone converses in something other than English. I dont understand why. I asked her what the problem is and she was a little evasive.
