Even the experts who UPI spoke to were split about how Kim might conduct the meeting with Trump.
"If Kim shows a strong command of English during the U.S.-North Korea summit, Trump is likely to be surprised," said Yang Moo Jin, a professor at the University of North Korea Studies. "Conversing in his counterpart's language could help smoothen the atmosphere for negotiations."
Others, however, did not believe this to be possible, because being able to hold high-level talks on diplomatic matters requires a much higher degree of fluency than just carrying out a simple conversation.
"Kim may have learned English during his studies abroad but he doesn't seem to be perfectly fluent," said Ahn Chan Il, a North Korean defector who was a military leader in his home country and who now heads up the World Institute for North Korea Studies. "It's likely he will greet President Trump in English and use an interpreter for the meeting."
In short, it's clear that Kim definitely studied English in school, but the jury is still out as to how well he can actually communicate in it. Although there's no general consensus yet, it seems very likely that Trump and Kim will at least have an interpreter present as they hold their monumental meeting.
