When I went to Puerto Rico, I had a couple of American tourists try to ask me directions in Spanish... That was comical!
A friend of ours from my wife's city in Colombia always has foreign students coming up to him in bars here in Ames and trying to speak to him in Chinese and Japanese.
His mother visited the US last year, flying here on the same flight with us during our return flight from Colombia. Asians kept coming up to her in the airports speaking Chinese and Japanese, too. She didn't know what to think, since she speaks only spanish. It was pretty funny. Her son has been here in Ames for a year or so, so he speaks some english, in addition to spanish.
