Today I was speaking with some native friends. I was in their office, there were 6 of them and I was the “outsider”. We started speaking in lithuanian and I kept talking as much as I could.
It was nice, I could understand almost everything but they kept laughing when I was talking.
I am not complaining here, I understand how funny it sounds when someone is trying to speak italian with me and I need to pretend they are very good, just to keep them motivated.
But my friends didn’t, I am sure they appreciated my efforts and I am not here to do an accusation.
I am just saying some people can’t take this, they feel not secure and they never try to use the language, because people will laugh and it takes a lot of confidence to keep going, keep talking, keep making mistakes.
Bliu Bliu takes that into account :)
