Who is a minority language speaker in a friends group?

  1. I have been hanging out with some Dominican people and they all speak Spanish and English. I am a white kid who can speak English and basic, basic, basic Spanish. 

    I have been hanging out at their place, and I am experiencing a language barrier for the first time. They speak Spanish around me to each other, but address me with English.

    I don't feel like I am being excluded per say, but I feel like a black sheep for sure. 

    They are all real chill and we all get along, but the language barrier makes me feel a little awkward. I don't really mind, but it does get to me after a few hours. 

    Has anyone else experienced a similar situation?
