Word meanings

Living on a ship with people from all over the world means that language becomes a topic of conversation. The science party is made up of people living in the US, Japan, France, Germany, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, China, Korea and the UK (sorry if I’m forgetting anyone!). The ship crew has a large number of people from the Philippines. Sometimes we don’t understand each other because we don’t know the words to say, other times it is because the words have double meaning, and for me, it is sometimes because I think my brain just works a little bit different than everyone else.
