Is it embarassing?

March 10, 2009

Ok, so my English is not that good, I know that. I’m not much troubled about it but I do want to improve. I can easily conversate with any native english speaker but I cannot have a conversation with a lot of people around here. Most of the time I ask the same question 3 times: ” Excuse me, can you please repeat?” then I give up, put up a big smile and say yes. It is really awkward when I am trying to be nice and have a polite conversation and I have no clue whatsoever what the other one is saying.

I have a gardner whose English is so bad I cannot ask him to come and cut the grass. The lady at the cosmetic salon had such a poor English I had a hard time asking her a few simple questions. In any shop I go I have to ask them to repeat so I can try to guess what they are saying. It is really embarassing, for me
