In general, while doing world travel, how difficult is it to get by when only knowing English? I know that learning some of the local language is the polite thing to do, but language has always been my weakest subject. I feel totally dense and tone deaf in this area. I don’t even feel like I can totally wrap my head around the English language. In grade school I was diagnosed with some form of auditory dyslexia, and it must have something to do with these difficulties. I still haven’t made it out of the US yet, and this is a barrier that intimidates me.
