it's baffling how many ppl not just complain but outright RACIST about dominican's lack of speaking/understanding english.
fyi - ENGLISH is NOT the most widely spoken language in the world - mandarin is.
like someone else on the forum wrote, before complaining about how dominicans can't speak english, why not address our own inability to understand spanish? the staff i met knew more english than i did spanish, and i appreicated that because I AM VISITING THEIR COUNTRY!
we'd all have a happier vacation if we have the curtsy to pick up a spanish phrasebook, or at the least, have some respect for the staff that work 10 hr days for $50/week to cater to our needs.
