  • [Chinese] 我覺得我的中文不好 And you think your English is bad?

  • The Taiwanese can actually speak very well like, if you're so aggressive like "Hey! Where's this place?" I don't think it's frightening to them.

  • But it's more like "Oh God, what's the right answer? How do I tell them? What do I say first?"

  • I think it's a detail thing for a lot of foreigners about like that.

  • Because obviously we can't speak the language, so you really have to get so specific.

  • That could be a thing that kind of holds a lot of Taiwanese back to speaking English, and then also maybe how fast.

  • I want for them to understand that it's okay.

  • And you can speak very slow. You can speak as slow as you want.

  • They should be more confident, definitely!

  • It doesn't matter how many English words that you know.

  • If you know one, if you know road. We can work off of that.

  • The only thing I have to compare to in the areas is maybe Japanese.

  • They have huge problem with pronunciation and stuff.

  • Even ones who were taking it for a long time, so...

  • Foreigners get lost really easily; please we need your help as much as you can.

  • Please just come up and talk to us, ask if we need anything.

  • I think most foreigners really wanna make new friends.

  • And I think a lot of Taiwanese are very hard on themselves when it comes to English speaking, because they feel maybe they've been learning it for so long that they should know it.

  • For me, I can pick it up.

  • I know exactly what they are saying. It might not be grammatically correct.

  • As long as there are some dialogue, there are some meaning associated with the conversation.

  • I don't even think it matters.

  • You speaking English in general is nice to us like now I've been learning Chinese for a year.

  • But I'm not that good myself so I can't possibly judge you, based on your level of English when my level of Chinese is not even that good.

  • [Chinese] 慢慢來 Okay? Just take it easy like, you are good. If we can understand it,

  • you are good. Just if you see a foreigner that speaks English to you just try your best.

  • - Because we are not going to you know, criticize you for it. You are speaking English with us and that's all we ask for so...- We will work through it!

  • You know let us know what you think.

  • Oh by the way, we are twins!

  • - We are twins! Whee... - Yeah, if you didn't noticed this.
