I'm aware that Asian girls often laugh and giggle when they are embarrassed and its part of their culture to also cover their mouths while they laugh. But I notice some (not all) laugh a LOT when I try to speak with them in their language since I speak it poorly and with a thick accent. I'm not even trying to tell a joke or funny story or anything. Sometimes if I smile and act like I'm joking around and say something in their language, they'll laugh hysterically. I guess alot of their laughter probably comes from being shocked as they're not used to hearing foreigners (even Asian-Americans like me) speak their language with an accent. I just hope they're not laughing AT me as they see me as being mentally retarded or a monkey in a zoo. But perhaps when they laugh like that it's an IOI because they sometimes also compliment me for speaking their language well. What do you guys think?

I think you should stop caring why they're laughing. That's a Beta attitude all the way.
As long as they keep going out with you or keep giving it up, why they're laughing isn't important.
Also, if you know Asians then you know that if you speak their language halfway decent, they'll give you a compliment to be polite.
Chinese people laugh at me when I speak Chinese, but I don't give a damn. I'm getting so many dates here than I ever did back home, why should I care if people laugh at my attempts to speak the language?
Your inferiority and low-esteem, Luoldeng, is holding you back way too much, bro. Stop acting and being a 'beta'--as AmericanInBangkok has stated! Who cares if people laugh at you, when speaking Korean. I would be too busy dating the girls and having fun in Korea--to ever care! If you can't have fun in South Korea, then I don't know what anyone can ever do for you?
