yeah.. i got same problem with my parents too. I almost always got to repeat what i say twice. I'll spontaneously speak to them in english, then they go "huh?", then i got to translate what i said.

It's very awkward when we're having an argument.. coz i'll be saying something angrily.. then having to translate what i sed, the heat behind the words suddenly dissapeared.

lol there is a language barrier for me and my parents, and it often leads to family feuds

this sounds like something that could be in the extended discussion btw, just saying

well.. even though my parents speak english. and i don't really have any point on being in this thread. but at least your parents are trying to speak english and thats something that they should be commened for! because not everyone's parents plan on learing engish and want to get jobs where speaking english is heavily depeneded on... that gets annoying. really.

If your parents dont speak english, its not something to be embarressed about. How many american families move to lets say europe, and then its only the younger family members who pick up the language. Some people just cant learn new languages or are a little slower at learning them than others.

Yes, my mom asks me when she doesn't know the word. It gets annoying sometimes when they ask me to do everything for them....

My parents are terrible when it comes to speaking English. This thread doesn't apply to me, though. I don't live in an english-speaking country.

But at home, I tend to speak english a lot because that's the language I speak on the internet. Mostly when gaming and at CR. It annoys the hell out of them. My dad tries to talk along, and that's really funny to hear.

English is just so much easier than my own language. -_- A lot of things are way easier to describe in English.

My parents are horrible at speaking/listening/reading/writing English. So I have to translate most things for them.
