1) The HP internal learning center (called "Grow@HP") runs you through a search screen to find required courses.

One of the search elements is "Language".

One of the available languages is "Klingon".

There are no courses in Klingon. Yet...

In one of my previous jobs, I was working on a directory of CD-ROMs (this was when they were New and Rare, and you had to use a special caddy to load them into your New and Rare CD-ROM-enabled computer!), and one of the discs we got info on for cataloguing was Star Trek: Klingon. I argued, successfully, for Klingon to be added to the list of available languages on the database.

Don't know from Tin Tin, but one of the benefits of learning French was reading Asterix in the vernacular.
