Language Barrier

Did you ever work with people whom language is the main concern? Did you ever had a bad day at work where in you already explain what happened but then they couldn't understand? These questions popped in my mind this week. In my work history, I never had a problem communicating with the people I worked with and to our clients. When you work in a foreign country where language barrier is the problem, you will find a hard time expressing your thoughts and feelings. No matter how extensive your explanation is, they just couldn't get it. Did you ever get frustrated when you talk to them, they nod their head to you as an agreement on what you said but find out later that they really don't understand a thing of what you told them.. It is so frustrating. What I experienced this week at work taught me a big lesson. DON'T TRUST ANYBODY BUT YOURSELF!
