Dear Abe,

I am finding it difficult to follow what the lecturer says in class because my English is not very good. Is it possible to get the lectures in my home language.

Dear International Student,

I am sorry to hear you are having some difficulty with your lectures. As you are trying to complete a degree in an English-speaking country, you are not able to get lectures in your home language. There are some resources that can help your English language skills to develop. Perhaps the best thing to do is to always speak English to your friends. That way, you do not feel self-conscious or worried that you might say the wrong thing, and you can very quickly improve that skill.
