Where do you live? The US? I'm surprised they would send an exchange student to a country without knowing how to speak the language.

Anytime my school had exchange students, they were always fluent in English.

i just need some advice....you see,we've got an exchange student from columbia(i think)...and our teacher said that he's not fluent in english......he speaks spanish...so how do you think we should approach this new guy...we want him to feel welcome in our class...



I usually break the ice with people who don't speak the same languge as I do by presenting them some of my dirty talk I know in their language. For example when we had a mexican exchange student who was really quite I sat down next to him and shouted "Tchupas mes cochones!" ( yeah, I know I didn't spell it right ), first he was terrified, then he was terrified, then he laughed

Dealilng with an exchange student is like dealing with a noob in CR. Both of you may be intelligent, but he/she is in your turf and has to learn your rules. So the best way to do this is to, as skygod said, find some common ground. You don't have to exactly learn spanish fluently, but using gestures and pointing out things with your body language is very effective... it's like sending noobs PMs and semi-flaming them for things so they get the point.

Okay, I don't know if the analogy is working, but something to that effect.

EDIT to above: look up.
