I am a second language person. But, I don't have problem while I am working with people. Because, I understand what they feel, for example I visit Baltimore last February, that was my first visit. My choir director at high school, he said I don't need to comeback on Friday rehearsal, because my flight arrived at chicago airport at 6.00 am. I needed to drive during four hour, choir rehearsal starts 10.45am. But, I went to choir rehearsal even though he said I don't need to come. I feel he needs me.
