I'm barely fluent in English, but I'm also fairly good at broken French and Spanish. I spent a week in Mexico, where I learned such useful phrases as "lo siento" (I'm sorry) and "ocho mas cervezas por favor." Towards the end of that week we were hanging out with some American girls we met, and one of the guys that was with us couldn't speak anything but the pidgin English we'd been using. No matter how many times they told him they were from Oregon, he kept gesturing wildly and saying complicated words loud and slow. It worked out that night because they thought it was cute, but ended up getting him patted down when we landed in "HOO-stun" Focus: Do you speak more than one language? Any funny stories involving the language barrier? Alt focus: Does anyone else get confused when they hear two obviously foreign people speak to each other in English instead of their native tongue?
