This lady speaks English fairly well, with a slight accent…but, as the letter shows, she has spent no time learning written English. She told my wife the other day she tried to go on a two-way e-mail chat line with a yarn supplier about a question she had. They wrote her that they could not understand a word she was writing. I believe it!
