When you don’t speak a language you kind of get pushed to the side in a conversation. It’s not malicious or meant to be cruel but as most people can imagine and as I’ve said before, why should the majority bow to the needs of the minority. If everyone at the event speaks Spanish in a Spanish speaking country I have no ill feelings being the only English speaker. It’s just really boring.
I’m currently watching fútbol (see I’m learning the important things) at the Chilean’s friend’s house. The Chilean and his friends are talking and that’s totally fine. But if you aren’t speaking or really involved in the conversation it’s harder to gauge your drinking. Because you don’t really have anything else to give your attention to, you give it to your drink and you get drunk a lot faster.
Or maybe it’s just me.
