Hmm.. My parents can speak English but not fluently .. My English teacher was speaking to my dad in Parent's Evening and he always says 'hah?' to the teacher... I told him instead of saying 'hah?' he could say ' I beg your pardon?' . But he's got that habit of saying it over and over again. It can get very embarrassing since I'm in a top-set English class (I don't know how I ended up there ). He mumbles his words and his sentences are joined together as if there are no full stops, I saw the worrying look on the teacher's face when she was talking to my dad. I was like "I hope this will end now !! "

my parents are pretty fluent some accents here and there, but they got the hang of it
but my grandparents aren't

my mom said that when she was little she would sometimes ask her parents if she could have some money to buy "adjectives" and "adverbs"
my grandparents didn't know what these words ment, but it sounded important and complex^^
lol
the trick worked

calm down girl!


i was calm... she is just stupid whenever she goes like, no english. Then whenever i tell her to learn English, she says "Oh, I don't have time to, I need to earn money."

Okay so generally I have to do all of that but get over it. Yeah, I admit I become a little pissy bitch when it happens. It's hard to learn a new language especially if you're old. Cut them some slack. Fortunately, my mom picked up a few words so she speaks FOB English, it's decent.

My mother knows only Chinese. It's a little hard since we live in Japan, but because the languages are so similar, she finds her way around it, with assistance from the family.
