I conduct my business in English. Always will unless I travel to another country. If a business within these borders will not understand me in English, I will use another establishment to get the goods or services I require.

I know very little spanish, I was just making a joke. I've been on this forum for almost 5 years. If I've learned anything not related to Jeeps, it's that many Americans have a weak grasp on the english language.
It's a very difficult language to learn, and I'm a little ashamed that I don't have the patience to pick up a second language. Right now I'm in China, the only thing I can recognize are numbers and the very few signs translated into english, so I can understand the difficulties for someone new to a country that can't fully speak the language. I also had a conversation with some students that claimed to have very poor english and were at first embarrassed to talk with us because they can't fully understand all of our grammar rules, but honestly it was pretty good, even better than some Americans that can speak "American".
