People Who Don’t Speak a Word of the National Language
I could understand if you’re touring around the country, doing the best you can in order to get by for the short period of time that you’re actually in the country, but for the people who actually live and work here and know nothing of the national tongue: for shame. How do you really expect to get by in a country when you can’t even communicate with the people? Get a textbook, watch some subtitles, read the newspaper. Quit making friends with only people who speak your native tongue. You’re out-casting yourself, and no one will like you.
