I came to Canada almost four years ago with zero skill of communications in English. Plus the fact that I have been speaking Vietnamese for my entire life, I do have to say that I speak English with a Vietnamese accent. I’ve been improving my pronunciation every day; however, it’s still very noticeable that I speak English as a second language.
After the talk between the A person and me on that “XYZ”, I came home and cried. I’m sure that you would be like me sometimes trying to figure the problems ourselves but failed. The more I tried to solve the problem ourselves, the more I was not rational, and the more I dug myself deeply in the swamp.
