So then I'll try British slang, since most people can't understand it either. I was reminded, as I muttered rude things under my breath this morning, that one of the SAP people is from England, and he sits right behind me. Bug-- *cough*
In unrelated news, I'm signed up for a class on Thursday nights. It's a language exchange program, where one hour of the class we converse in English, and the next hour we converse in a foreign language. I'm hoping this will help my confidence in speaking Japanese, and build my vocabulary in useful areas. We shall see how it goes.
