Do not be shy to admit that you speak Neoslavonic. Slavs are friendly people, there is no need to pretend that You speak and understand in some real language. Maybe you will experience, for example, a Bulgarian will think that you speak Croatian or Slovak etc. Tell them the truth. Slavic people will be happy about Your talking in an universal language, which sounds similarly to their own. Explain to Your partners what is Neoslavonic, do not hesitate to present the language background.

Moreover, remember that the local Slavic languages ​​have their own specifics, which are useful for You to know.
