I find when I go to the market and attempt to speak in Georgian, my interlocutors reply in Russian 😦
Me: რა ღირს? (How much? in Georgian)
Seller: шестьдесят (sixty in Russian)
Me: სამოცი? (sixty in Georgian)
(hands over 1 lari, gets forty tetri back and goods)
Me: დიდი მადლობა (thank you in Georgian)
Seller: спасибо (thank you in Russian)
Is my Georgian pronunciation so bad?
Do they think because I’m not Georgian I will automatically understand Russian (I don’t)?
