My classmates look happier without me

Hi,
I am quite a shy person and not confident as I recently moved to a foreign country. My first language is not english or any alphabetic languages so I have difficulty understanding what my classmates say.

When I come to a group of classmates chatting, I can feel they have more fun when talking without me. Cause my classmates are sweet and try to have me in the conversation but as I cannot follow the conversation very well, I don't know it gets awkward and weird...

I'm not looking for advice I think... I just wanted to talk about this to anyone... Thanks for listening.

Hi,
I hope things are improving, sounds like you're just finding your feet, I know you will buddy up with a couple of group members and they will help you through it, I was like this due to disfigurement as I could not talk properly they had to translate for me, remember you have all the time in the world.
