I grew up being mostly around Asians.
I have very little experience communicating with Caucasians.
To some people, it may not be a big deal. Well, I am some people.
It is no big deal but because I have very little exposure to foreign accents, I tend to misunderstand what my partner (who is Australian) say most of the time.
I predict that this is going to be the norm but I will get through this. I bet she is having the same problem with me. I do try to speak good English as much as I can, of course.
Anyways, Kerry was very sweet and understanding today. I am glad I am working with her. I know it is a learning lesson for both of us, especially me.
