Frustration!

Have you ever gone to another country where you didn’t really know the language and you had an emergency? What did you do to make yourself understood? Were you angry that people couldn’t understand you? Did you know a few words of their language and tried your best to convey what you needed? English can be frustrating but they key is to at least say a few words of what you need. For example, if you lose your cell phone, know words like “lost”, “cell phone”, and “help”. But what do you do when people begin talking to you quickly and you just can’t understand? My suggestion is to stay calm and know how to say “sorry, but I don’t understand. Please speak slowly.” Chances are, the person trying to help you will do that and be patient with you as you figure out your emergency together. I can relate to language frustrations. Not being fluent in a language can be frustrating but never give up learning and trying your best. The best time I had learning a language was when I was in Mexico. I had been there for about a month with other people from my university and we decided to go to KFC. Among all three or four of us, we knew a good amount of Spanish but not enough to order different cuts of chicken. A friend of mine wanted chicken wings but none of us knew the word for “chicken wings” in Spanish. So she acted out what she wanted, flapping her arms and pointing. The staff laughed at us, we laughed at ourselves and the other customers laughed too. It was funny and a great way to learn a language. My advice to you, don’t get too frustrated when learning English. Have fun with it just as my friends and I did with Spanish. It’s also a great way to make friends.
