Somali people responding to me in English when I speak to them in somali. I went to a well known xaawalad and I spoke to the teller in somali and for the whole exchange he spoke to me in English while I kept replying in Somali.

I genuinely believe I speak somali fluently now. But it seems no matter they can tell it doesn't come naturally, why do they respond in English when I can speak in Somali? This happens with everyone as well not just xaawalaads.

The opposite happens with me. Somalis get huffy or depressed if I speak in English. Even ciyaalka xaafadda reply in broken Somali.

That always happens to me wallahi. I speak in Afsomali to Somali elders and they always speak in English with me. I laugh and eventually switch to English and all of the sudden they turn deaf and switch back to Afsomali.


I'm always like this
