Expatriates living in the UAE are missing out on the chance to integrate themselves into different cultures because of the language barrier, according to the Polish ambassador to the emirates.
Roman Chalaczkiewicz, who is leaving next month after serving the UAE embassy for five years, commented that many expats confine themselves to their own communities instead of getting to know local people and cultures.
"How many expatriates in the UAE know the Arabic language, even after staying here many years? The answer will explain the majority of expatriates’ attitude towards other civilisations and peoples," he told Gulf News last week.
Expats are not taking advantage of the opportunity they have to learn new things and instead only socialise with their own communities.
Alongside this, many expatriate entrepreneurs only offer jobs to people from their own country, Mr Chalaczkiewicz suggested, adding that this trend could create closed societies.
He suggested that all expatriates learn the language of the country to which they are relocating, in order to make friends and make the most of all opportunities they are given.
The newspaper last week reported that the UAE has become Poland’s biggest trading partner in the Arab world.
