I get embarrassed sometimes when I have speak to strangers(or people in general). I admit a majority of it in the past was due to my shyness; as a child I was the one who would hold on to my parents leg and bury my face into their leg whenever I had the chance. Thankfully growing up has provided me with enough confidence to at least not run away and hide when I have to meet new people.

However my problem now is not my shyness but my pronunciation of the English language. Yep the old tomato debate; and everything that comes along with it (e.g. spelling/grammar). I have the worse time when it comes to pronouncing words for the first time. This is particular embarrassing when I have to go shopping.

You might ask why shopping would cause me problems rather than a normal conversation. Over the years I have developed my skills in the kitchen and my knowledge about cuisines; this means I can bake and cook more variety for my family and friends. This has directly affected the amount and range of ingredients I buy so I can taste them and cook with them. I do not know about you but why, why are some food stuffs so hard to pronounce? Especially referring to the European countries cheese and deli products. I think it took me a couple of goes at German food stuffs to get it remotely right.

I might be a baker of sweet things but I am a savoury girl at heart. I do not think there is anything better than cheese, butter and bread. So every time I go shopping I am always after a new cheese. My most recent trip to the supermarket illustrates my point exactly. I often buy my cheese from a deli section or a specialised deli, so I have to talk to someone if I want to buy dairy foods. This time I wanted to buy some an alpine cheese, sweet and nutty is what I was in mood for.

Looking at the selection table, something caught my eye; a new cheese? Yes please! Unfortunately it also came with a complicated name, Berner Alpkäse. Let me say the person serving me was very nice to not make fun of me. I was surprised they were not more offended at the way I butchered the Swiss language, but I guess they are nice people. Maybe one day I will actually get one right first go, until then I stubble my way through language like most do.
