Once I was being interviewed by an interviewer with a very thick accent. I often had to ask him to repeat himself slowly three or four times, and often still couldn't tell what he was saying. I don't think either of us had much fun.
What's the least bad way to handle such a situation?
(I have mild hearing loss in one ear, it is generally is no problem, but it does make already difficult to understand people extra hard for me to understand)
