Greetings, It's great to be back and about to share another week with you!

Many of our readers use what they learn from WordMaster to communicate more effectively with foreign employees in the workplace. Others are, or will soon become, foreign employees themselves while working overseas. So we'll be talking all week about these men and women laboring far from home!
