English or Mandarin?

Lady: Ji ge?
(How many in Mandarin)
I hold up one finger.

Lady: Ji ge?
Me: One.

Lady: Ji ge or pok?
Points to menu: chicken or pork or beef.
Me: Oh, I want beef.

Despite bad accents I am usually good at figuring out what people are saying. That is unless I don’t know what language they are speaking!
