And it will get worse with the requirements for functional English to be removed from the 457 visas.I do get concerned when sales staff cannot spell one of the brands they are selling or where they botch the spelling of a competitor. That would make it hard to look up their website.
If you are working in an office in Australia and you need someone to explain to you what to do day to day in a foreign language that is extremely sad. This is not a production line or a cleaning job. Even worse is when you are working in IT and you are not able to understand the functional specification but make sure you speak you native tongue as much as possible as that will guarantee your English is going to get better.
