Re: Language Barriers
I guess I would apologize, maybe even in Japanese...I'm sure you could find a translation. But I would also seriously reconsider my friendship, her response is over the top. She's punishing all the English speaking people she knows for your one transgression. She will end up paying the price, because she's isolating herself.
There was an interesting conversation here several months ago about why most Americans don't know a second language. The conclusion was that it's not necessary....most Americans never leave the country and for those that do, English has been pretty well adopted as a universal language, particularly in the business world.
So, the reality is, your friend needs to learn English a lot more than you need to learn Japanese (unless you plan a career where it would be beneficial). So in that light, her response to your offer is even more ill advised.
