To add another scenario: You're sitting in a testing center, so very very nervous about the licensing exam. You look at the first question. Of course it's in norwegian.
Frayed nerves + unfamiliarity with norwegian medical terms= kabooom!
It's nice that there are lots of opportunities for Filipinos everywhere but sometimes we have to accept that we have limits. Good that there is language training, but I think that it won't be enough, especially in the field of nursing where every communication should be accurate and specific. Having a few months of training in a very unfamiliar language just won't work. Having just an "acceptable" knowledge of the Norwegian language is not good enough, especially in dealing with people everyday and carrying out orders that affects their health and lives.
