Since our team is new to the group, though, we were expected to give introductions at the latest group meetings. As per usual, I received no advanced warning, instead just being told to come to the group meeting as everyone else heading to it.
Our team was a bit late, so I got separated from the other team members taking the few remaining chairs. Without anyone to translate for me
