I arrived in London at last. The railwaystation was big， black and dark. I did not know the wayto my hotel， so I asked a porter.I not only spoke English very carefully， but veryclearly as well. The porter， however， could not understand me. I repeated my question several times andat last he understood. He answered me， but he spokeneither slowly nor clearly. 'I am a foreigner，' I said.Then he spoke slowly， but I could not understand him.My teacher never spoke English like that！ The porterand I looked at each other and smiled. Then he said something and I understoodit. 'You'll soon learn English！' he said. I wonder. InEngland， each person speaks a different language. TheEnglish understand each other， but I don't understandthem！ Do they speak English？
