Visitors from other countries are very important among the people involved in the Sydney 2000 Olympics. It is therefore vital that they be well cared for so that when they return home they paint an attractive image of Australia and thereby encourage potential tourists to visit Australia. In recognition of this, the managing director of Ansett, Australia's major internal airline, has urged workers in the tourism industry to learn to cater for foreign-language-speaking visitors before 2000. In the October 1993 issue of Panorama, Ansett's in-flight magazine, he reminds us that tourism is employment intensive and therefore important to the Australian economy. Writing about the Games, he suggests that tourism offers a 'golden opportunity to piggy-back new awareness to generate its own international promotion.' He believes that the industry has to be able to make sure it has the 'ability to cater for foreign-language speakers'. The contribution that schools can potentially make to this tourism need is obvious, and the need may prompt students to seek careers built on foreign-language skills and knowledge of other countries' geographical features.
