I had many problems especially about English.
I couldn't make myself understood well.
My pronuciation is really bad,and it was very hard to ask water.
For Japanese, it is difficult to pronunce 'water', because we don't have the same sound in our language.
First time,I told 'water, please' with courage
at a restaurant.
Almost all the time,I was asked 'ha?'
My heart of glass was likely to be broken arising from insecurity of my English.
I got on asking water again.
Half the time it can be ordered correctly,and the other time it fails.
I talked my friend who was fluent in English about that.
'I have a difficulty even in asking just a glass of water.I can't survive here because I might die of dry throat.'
My friend ask me 'try to say H2O'
That's a chemical sign and doen't sound like a drink.
