All of my development colleagues (software development company) are based overseas in India (I'm in the UK). I'm in a junior position and a lot of my development relies on being taught how to do things by my overseas colleagues.
I have a very hard time understanding the accents of my colleagues and often find myself asking them to repeat 4-5 times before I just sort of say okay and move on.
It's obviously not their fault and I feel like it’s starting to hinder my progress a lot.
Has anyone else had success finding a workaround in such a situation or have any ideas how to bring this issue up without sounding like a total jerk?
