Oh wow, what is wrong with most of the kids on here? You keep saying your parents not knowing English so well is an annoying things, blah blah blah, get the fuck used to it.
You should be grateful that your parents/grandparents spent all their time, money, effort to immigrate to the U.S. or U.K. so YOU people can have a better education and future. If it werent for them, you would have still been in some poor ass country already
Yes, they can't communicate well in English, they have to rely on you when it comes to writing a simple check or doing paperwork, have you even sat your ass down and thought about how hard it was for them running all over asking people for help with all that stuff when they first moved here? Was it easy for them? Hell to fuck no! But they still got things worked out for them, get a job, and to be able to provide you with food, a place to live and all the nice things you have today.
Be considerate of what you have and what people have done for you. Imagine yourself in their roles then hopefully you'd know how it feels.

My parents do not know any English at all. It have a plus side and a bad side. On the good side, they never know if I cuss or say something inappropriate to my friends on the phone or when they come over. But on the bad side, it's very hard to communicate. Since I don't remember much of my own language. It gets confusing. Plus I have to translate for them... which is mostly disastrous.

My dad is a white country man so he speaks English just fiiiine.
My mom, being the Asian she is, couldn't really speak
English very well.
Her Japanese was better than her English XD

Which is why I had to keep learning and
alternating between languages back in Japan.
My mom would use Japanese,
dad would use English,
and my grandma would use Tagalog.
It was confusing.

Mom is handicapped in the head now,
so she can't speak any language decently anymore.
I'd prefer her to keep her mouth shut.
Every time she talks, I just want to hit something.
