The job force is a buyer’s market, and any edge that you have makes you more employable and better suited to the variety of international positions offered in Las Vegas. Those in the casino trade, from housekeepers to dealers, have to learn adequate English in order to communication. Those training others, or greeting guests from all over the world, may be expected to learn a number of languages in order to converse with their guests. And sometimes life’s unexpected occurrences make it necessary to learn ASL, as an educator or for personal use. Luckily, being the cosmopolitan center that it is, Las Vegas offers lessons in most every language and skill at a variety of excellent institutions.
