Having worked for American employers from almost day 1 of my imigration and having valued an opportunity to hold a job/ jobs I consider his misinterpretations of communications or lack of understanding (after 4 years in the USA) as unprofessional approach to his job.
Some people are able to pick up languages and others aren't. My first language was Greek but I can't spit out 2 words together anymore so when I am around people who primarily speak Greek, I clam up. With me, at least it was my first language so if I had to pick it up again but if I were forced to learn it as an adult, it would be really hard.

I'm saying this as someone that didn't want him on the team, just so you know.
