Talking to a foreigner!

When talking to a foreigner, talk English slow, steady and loud(reasonably audible). Indians(new entrants) try to talk faster english, which might not be clear to foreigners. Learn Phonetics. Phonetics is the subject where it shows how every word is split. You can check this out in any dictionary, just right next to every word. Learn how to spell a word. see the dots between the letters. For example - You can see how responsibility is pronounced by an Indian and in other hand an American. Responsibility - re•spon•si•bil•i•ties - (r-spns-bl-t).
