On Friday I went to a party.
It was a friend’s birthday.
And he invited a small group to his apartment to celebrate.
There were guests from Germany, Slovakia, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Portugal, and of course, Estonia.
And guess what the common language was?
Well, English, of course.
Only later, on my walk home, did I think about the fact that I was the only native speaker.
And then I wondered, What if I didn’t speak English?
Well, I probably wouldn’t have been invited.
It’s the same reason I don’t get invited to play tennis, because I don’t play tennis.
What’s the lesson here?
Improve your English and join the party!
