Two more basic sentences for my stay in Korea
To avoid two of my frustrations, although the rest of my stay is really a pleasure :-)
Please how do I say, in a relative simple but still polite way:
1 . Do not worry, I am used to eat spicy food!
I am getting all kind of warnings, and the stewardess of Korean Air was really that worried when I order the Korean dish. She almost grepped the spicy sauce out of my hand.
2. If you cannot speak English, I will try to explain in Korean.
It's very demotivating that people do not answer you, when you ask your first question in English, but just run to another colleague that does. Last time a girl just walked a way without saying one word. And then came back, literally 5 minutes later, with a colleague who could speak English. Please do not do that! I told them in frustration: "Hey, I might speak a little Korean too!!"
