shalom Trevor, 

Good point, below, and you said, not I.

A distinguished professor at Hebrew U once made the comment that 
the whole field suffers for lack of fluent control of the language(s).
It's hard for a school to require something at a PhD level that would 
naturally have been expected in the first two-three years of a first
degree.

blessings,
