Pretty difficult to speak it
I was born in Latvia and Russian was my first language. I've gotten worse at it every year but my parents and their friends are fluent.

Spanish and Italian are pretty similar, I have a lot of friends that study or live in Spain and they learned the language pretty quickly. Me too I've learned spanish with ease...
But it's way harder to learn French... Even in school, the majority of the people have problems in that... But it's probably because we hate them and they hate us ;)

First off, sorry for not keeping up with these, having tight schedule. Will do now.

I'm guessing this is a very formal way to say to excuse me. What's something more casual? Pardon?
Well, Ward, it all depends on which type of Mexicans you're talking too. If it is food I suppose they're people with some money, so con permiso is actually appropiate. Maybe they are laughing at the way you pronounce it, or maybe it is not in the right situation, or at your accent?

Anyhow, a more casual way of saying ''con permiso'' can be simply ''permiso'' ''discupleme''... but I would need to know about the types of situations you're at to be able to tell you.

Some phrases you could say when you don't understand are:

''Mi espaņol es malo, disculpe'' or ''Podria repetir por favor'' .. note it is repetIr not repeter.

hope that helps.
