"Embarrassment" Language Barrier Tip by betis1

Language Barrier, Sevilla: 6 reviews and 0 photos

Love it, embrace it, hug it like you can't get enough of it because if you're really worried about embarrassing yourself here than you're going to have a hard time. You can't be an expert on the language and culture or know how they do everything. To worry yourself about everything you say or do will keep you from learning more and in many cases advancing your confidence here. A little guts with no fear to speak will have others laughing at you from time to time, but you'll make it much further. Every time you learn how to ask for, do or get something it makes it that much easier the rest of the time you're here. And think about it - Sevillanos see and hear these mistakes almost every day, so it's nothing new to them. Most of the time when you try to speak or make a mistake you can just smile and the person behind the bar or desk will happily help you. Sometimes they won't, but remember you can find jerks everywhere in this world.
