If you do not want a slap in the future
The incident happened sometime back and many supported the teacher of English.
Yes, many did not consider how communication break down can be lead to some conflict. The UNESCO in 1954 already recommended Esperanto as the international language but many leaders of the countries did not respect the resolution and this lead to the unhappy incident.

Learning Esperanto needs 200 hours but learning English needs 3200 hours. Do you think the monk has the time to do it ?
