national assembly building, seoul, south korea
went to see the cherry blossoms at the NAB on sunday. ahh spriiiiiiiing
i’m sure you’ve all experienced this situation.
you walk into a cafe/restaurant/store/whatever and you talk to the barista/waiter/clerk in Korean (which they understand) but then they respond to you in English.
what do you do in this situation? do you change to English too or keep speaking Korean? is it rude to keep speaking Korean?
For me it depends on how I’m feeling at the time? Usually I keep going in Korean and the barista/waiter/clerk just uses it as an opportunity to practise their English while I practise my Korean. It’s definitely not rude!! At least, in my opinion.
Other times, if they speak fluent or at least very high level English I tend to slip back into English, which does annoy me because I really need to practise as much as I can.
I guess, just do whatever you’re most comfortable with at the time?
Capi Capi Loom Loom Cafe in Seoul
"If you’ve had your fix of Hello Kitty and want to cuddle with another cute Japanese character, Capi Capi is the place for you. Rilakkuma, a ridiculously adorable teddy bear famous throughout Asia, is the star of this cafe and is incorporated into every aspect of the interior. The layout of the cafe is quite unique; seating options include comfy couches, tables perfect for studying, and floor mats in cozy, private spaces, most of which were occupied by gossiping girls on my latest visit."
