When you meet a  foreigner who can't understander English...

Yesterday,my boss want me to send a fax,after I dialed the fax number,an foreigner got the phone.I asked"Hello, is this your fax number?"But he just answered with a word "hello",then silence...I repeated and reapeated ,but no answer again except "hello"...Then I knew from my boss that he can't understand English.

Then what will you do when you encounter this kind situation?

I am sure that they're using a faxaphone. When this happened to you, you can just tell him to find someone who can speak English, or tell him you're sending him a fax, let him give you a signal. You can just repeat "signal" several times to "remind" him.

Meanwhile, you can scan the file and send him by email, it's easy and cheap.  :)
