Sorry to hear that.

You are not alone, lots of IMGs have language problems.

You will improve your skill if your are confident.

The problem is that if somebody c/o your English, you may lose your confidence when you discuss with her/him and then the issue is getting worse.

I am an IMG and was also complained of my English, this made me depressed and crazy. I am in the 1st month of residency, everything is new to me so I often ask again to make sure I understand clearly, this makes me in trouble. In addition, I did not know why a senior resident dislikes me and continuously tells bad evaluation behind my back. I never offense him but he always follows what I am doing and then tells PD. I lost my confidence, has sleep deprivation (I sleep 3-4 hours/day) and things getting worse as you said. Please advise. thanks
