Sometimes their English may not be that poor after all. What's the mentality behind this whole sorry-my-English-is-poor attitude?

As you know, a lot of chinese people are very shy, they will feel embarrassed when they don't know what to say, or maybe they can't remember the vocabulay they want. so you need to patient with them.
