As the tourism season approaches, the UB city administration is preparing to be able to receive up to five million tourists. Many organizations are taking steps to attract tourists. With such an influx of people unable to speak Mongolian, serious language problems arise; first and foremost are situations involving the police.
Many Mongolian policemen do not have even a rudimentary knowledge of English. Therefore, in order to provide safety for tourists, a number of policemen are to learn English. The English speaking courses for UB police patrol officers start today.
