I have to say this. I am aware that English is the hardest language in the world to learn because of the slang and various accents. I am aware that most people these days don't want to learn it for that particular reason.
With that in mind, just keep in mind that I don`t care what you speak at home or amongst yourselves. When you deal with Americans it does help to have at least a basic working knowledge of the language.
I`ve run into this problem time and time again. If I have to explain to someone older than me that their transaction won`t work because they can`t understand what I`m saying, then I can understand their frustration but it`s not their country, it`s not their culture. Sorry.
I don`t go to China expecting to own a gun. I don`t go to a foreign country expecting it to be America 2.0 and I`m not going to ask for it. When in Rome, you do as the Romans. Simple.
