I am sometimes strong and sometimes weak,
But I am nobody's fool.
For there is no language that I can't speak,
Though I never went to school.
What am I?

Clue - there's a vague link to an event that is very important to the company I work for. Bonus points who can figure out what it is!!

Is it related to the Concorde flying again?

Yeah it is.. One of BA's three-hour flight over the Atlantic Ocean was the first test of a second concorde plane, called Alpha Echo.
And the answer to the riddle is Echo :-)
