Verbal language is just one channel of communication, humans have several others. Therefore, overcoming the language barrier is easier than it seems.

Euzawa was my room-mate in the hostel at KL for two days. He spoke little English and I knew only a few Japanese words. Somehow we still managed to communicate and have a good time hanging around in KL. We both learned things from each other. I shared my little vocabulary of Bahasa Malayu with him, he taught me some Japanese. At Jalan Petaing (China Town) he showed me how to use chopsticks.

Arigato gozaimas Euzawa!
