    Two members of Korea's coaching staff speak both Korean and Chinese. I don't know whether Tan communicates with his players in English or not.

    Wat? means translator? How, when over-reacted & need to talk at once, how to control, or ask a translator to translate at once, it would be a tough job to do so !! haha

    I thought usually should be Coaches who r multi-dialect, because it is almost quite impossible to ask a player to learn new language, Coach suppose to learn new language in order to adapt themselves isnt ? Haha, or maybe a thorough research is done eg, hire a coach after they make sure the coach can communicate with the players. Good Topic to discuss though :eek:

    Hiring a interpreter can't help to motivate players. players need to see the expression from coach to get motivation. sometimes, a interpreter is just too 'numb'. cannot send the actual motivation message to players

    I wouldn't be surprised if he found it more convenient to communicate with Malaysian players in Bahasa Indonesia, but he would have needed to communicate in English when he coached in England, would he not?

    Speaking of the English team, Lee Jae-bok definitely speaks English, and communicates in it with the players on the English squad but I'm sure that is obvious to many here, considering the coaching materials he has produced in his second language. Kim Young-man, Korean coach at the BWF World Training Centre in Saarbrucken, communicates with his players in English as well.

    The Korean team has a Chinese trainer who has lived in Korea for over 3 years and now speaks Korean.
