hahahaha damn true! but I've heard some other annoying phrases: 'Life is brutal/cruel' but yeah 90% do say that their English is bad
Yes, "Life is brutal" is my pet hate. Whoever taught this to Polish people needs a good beating IMHO... I don't know why, but it drives me crazy! I hate this saying! lol :)
I am very sorry for my English. It is so bad and full of mistakes, please excuse me.
The best response is just to tell the girl that she speaks English very well (even if she doesn't), then say to her (preferably in Polish) that if she would prefer it, that you can talk to her in Polish...
Better still, why not speak to her in Polish first and then you can apologise for how bad your Polish is (even though it's "perfect")?
