    We found the same thing with the Germany!! They ALWAYS speak German first to protect their legacy, then will scoff and go to English. I always wanted to apologize for inconveniencing them and making them cater to English…

      ha! That is awesome though. I tried a little bit of German but mostly just pointed!
