By this I mean, if you live in Canada(like I do) and you work with people from places like the Phillipines, India, Vietnam(just to name a few). People who's first language, isn't the language that your area uses or that you understand. At my work, I'm one of three home grown canadians out of 16 people who work there. 4 are vietnamese , 6 are phillipinese, and 3 are east indian. The 3 east indian ladies speak hardly a lick of english. THis makes it very hard to teach them about the job. They are always doing things wrong, you tell them and show them how to do it properly, but they just keep doing it the wrong way. It's very frusterating. It's really cool though, the Phillipinese people only half know english, so it's always fun, they bring me a list of words they've heard, and I write out the definitions for them. So what about you guys, do you have a similiar work condition? Lets hear about it, those lack of your main language co-workers.
