You're doing it wrong

No, YOU'RE doing it wrong!

You're the one that's doing it wrong!

Wait, I thought you did it the same way as me.

I do. I was responding to the other guy.

That's alright then, cos he's doing it wrong.

You're all doing it wrong!

Michel Thomas vs. Pimsleur

You're an American woman on a business trip in France. You're on a train to Paris. You see an elderly Polish man trying to teach some other passengers Portuguese. Only one of you can leave the train alive.

Do you remember how to say, "this ends now"?

Q: Which Latin American Spanish would be best to learn for travelling around Latin America?
A: It depends where you are going. If you are going to Peru, it might be a good idea to learn Peruvian, wheras Cuban would be best for Cuba.
A: Portuguese.
A: If going to Argentina, Welsh would be preferable.
A: If going to the Caribbean, French or Dutch could be best, depending on the exact island. English is also spoken, but I assume you already know that, given you asked the question in it.
