Does Marie Kondo Speak English?

The majority of Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo reality series is in English, as the show was shot in the United States.

She does, however, need somebody who can translate so that those who are familiar with the global language and watch the show may comprehend Marie better and more precisely.

Her publisher and agent apparently were unable to book her on standard press tours since she required an interpreter and does not speak the language fluently.
