I remember a friend I had in college whom I took a road trip from VA Tech to Boston with. Along the way we stopped in DC to have dinner at a friend’s restaurant. The food was really good, the restaurant was good, the only problem was that I didn’t understand ANYTHING. You see, he was Korean, his 2 friends we ate with were Korean, and they would only talk in English everyone once in a while during conversation. Needless to say, I didn’t feel to comfortable, welcome, or even free to engage in conversation because the message wasn’t comprehensible for me.
