"Excuse me, do you speak English?"
woman: Excuse me… Excuse me, sorry, do you speak English?
1st man: (in perfect English) No, I don’t. Sorry.
woman: My car’s broken down, and I wondered if you could tell me where to find a garage?
1st man: Well, you know, that’s wasted on me. I don’t understand what you’re saying.
woman: You don’t speak English at all …?
1st man: Not a word, no. That’s
one of those things where I wish I’d paid more attention at
1st man: I don’t know, I can’t understand her.
woman: (to 2nd man) Hi. My car’s broken down, and I need to find a garage.
2nd man: No, I’m sorry; I didn’t understand that at all.
woman: Alright, thanks. Ehrm…
1st man: I’ll tell you what, if you go down that way about half a mile, there’s a village, there might be somebody there that speaks English.
woman: Ich speak ein bisschen Deutsch. Sprechen Sie Deutsch?
1st man: Deutsch, nein.
2nd man: Deutsch, nein... nun, ein oder zwei Wörter, aber ich bin nicht fließend.
1st man: (to woman) So I’m sorry we were no help.
2nd man: Yeah, sorry about that. Hey,
you never know, next time you’re over, maybe we will have learned
a bit of English for you…
2nd man: Ja, das wäre toll!
woman: (desperate) Thanks anyway. (walks away)
2nd man: I can speak English
1st man: So can I
