Why can't I understand them?!



I had a spa appointment yesterday oo la7atht enna i can NEVER understand what il masseuse says! and that happens everytime and everywhere!
they speak english with this thai-ish chinese-ish accent illy wallah min '3air mubala'3ah kil kilmah wil thanya i'm like "sorry?" oo "come again?!"
willa algi6ly 1 word oo i remain silent staring at her for 2 min trying to analyze the word & put it in a sentence! ( which i often fail miserably at!).. it's really annoying!

When I try and speak french, french people look at me not understanding a word i'm saying although i'm using the right words. The accent ruins my whole attempt to show off!
