Language barriers crossed with PAL program

When Jina Lee walked in on her roommate and her boyfriend making out last week, she didn't quite know what to say - and it wasn't because she felt awkward. Lee was unfamiliar with the ways Americans communicate discomfort and, as an international student from Korea, she didn't quite have the language skills to voice that feeling.

So, Lee asked her American friend who she met through UC Davis' Partners in Acquiring Language (PAL) conversation program what she should do in that delicate situation.
