Pronunciation

Jose does not understand simple commands in English. If you are speaking to him you mainly have to use hand gestures for him to get what you are saying. When speaking to him you do have to speak very slowly and repeat yourself so that he can think about what is being said. Jose cannot speak his mind in English, as much as he tries. He can say simple pronouns but will stop to think about what he is trying to say but he always just says what he wants in Spanish and hopes that you will understand any part of what he has said. Jose has little to no oral vocabulary. He tries to say what he wants, but he ends up just giving up because he cannot express himself in this foreign language. He will attempt to speak in a complete sentence but ends up just saying what he wants in Spanish. Since he rarely speaks in English, and when he does you cannot understand him because his accent is so thick and he speaks very low and it is hard to understand him at all. He will only say one or two words but other times it is extremely difficult for him to mean what he wants.
