I love Gracie videos. But I have a shitload of Grace pictures on Myspace. 310 pictures, to be exact. An uneventful summer can lead to well over 200 pictures of Gracie - trust me!
It's not that I don't like the videos. I just never think to download them. Though maybe I should...eh.
As for the language barrier...don't worry about it. You all do fine.
Over the internet, what one person says can be taken a million different ways - even among those who speak the same language. It's more about interpretation more than your ability to speak english.
