A good question

My apartment building has many young people who are language students from Korea, Japan, China, Brazil and other countries.  They come for six months to a year generally to study English at downtown language schools.  Many are quite stylish dressers and have quite funky gear.  I am not the Queen of Small Talk but I’ve found if I meet them in the elevator and say “I like your hat/purse/shirt/shoes” or whatever, they are quite friendly.  We then exchange a few sentences of neighbourly chat as the elevator decends to the lobby. The most memorable fashion item was worn by a pleasant young Korean woman who spoke halting English.  Her coloured T-shirt had the phrase in large letters, “WHAT SHALL I DO?”
