When abroad I always speak my own language. If they don't understand, I repeat slowly and/or with easier words

Visitors / Tourists ought to speak my language. If they don't an on-line translation help is OK.

Traveling abroad I often speak a foreign language. I'm not really confident I will get the message across in my mother tongue

Occasionally I read a book or newspaper in a foreign language. It greatly improves my vocabulary.

Though I speak the foreign language very well, It's still embarrassing when people correctly guess my nationality.

Correctly guessing the region of origin of native speakers by their accent makes people wonder how long I've been living there

Many native speakers are careless about the orthography in their writing. Homonyms often are misspelled.

Most of the poll has been written as if English were your mother tongue. So wherever needed you may replace 'English' by your real mother tongue. I guess many answers will be geared towards the bottom set of possibilities if your language is not spoken abroad and/or hardly ever used as a second language.

Tourists should make an effort and not expect everyone to speak their language.

... or put differently: a tourist should only travel to countries where he/she speaks the language ...
