    'Turned away' means not successful in the job application or not accepted to apply ? I doubt it is the latter. Able to speak Mandarin does not mean the person will definitely get the job, there are Chinese who got their applications rejected too.

    You begin to start the realization of having the ability to glimpse into the world of "Who is the master of languages?"

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    The one man who had predicted and wanted Singaporeans
    to be ready for the onslaught of economic power of China is
    none other than our SM with his "Speak Mandarin" campaign
    more than one and half decade ago. Back then those non
    speaking Mandarin folks attending Mandarin classes
    immediately are reaping the rewards now.
