Because of you talk in language someone understands , you talk to their head. If you talk to someone in their own language, you talk to their heart. Can't remember who said that but I've remembered it when abroad for years.One thing I have noticed - that male friends seem to be like 'yeah, don't you don't have to learn French etc - English is fine'. Whereas its the female friends who keep asking when I'm starting French lessons etc.
Also works when you might need favours off blokes... Or a beer.
Stop being lazy. Learn the local lingo.
Remainers often seen to think just visiting a country is enough. It isn't. Immerse yourself in the language, culture and local eco-systems. Even if does just prove, again, that England is best.
I think Einstein said it was the definition of madness trying the same experiment over and over but expecting different results. But it is satisfying and think of the self-esteem your building in the foreigners by having an Englishman come down to their level and try to understand them.
