But we're speaking Chinese!

Translated into Chinese, this happens to me all the time.
In fact, in China, if you reply "no" (in Chinese) when someone asks you (in Chinese) whether you can speak Chinese, you can have an extended conversation (in Chinese) about how foreigners can't speak Chinese.

I'm not saying people should assume all foreigners can speak Chinese. I'm saying people shouldn't assume that all foreigners can't.
