Imagine you find yourself in the middle of a city you have never been to before. No phone, no money. What would be the first question you ask a stranger coming your way?
I guess: “What is this city?” or “What is this country?”
How stupid do you think it will sound to that person? Very stupid!
But you need the answer in order to start your journey home or any other desired destination.
Whenever you start learning, ask questions you need an answer to keep you going. It does not matter what other people might think.
