"Why can't the English, learn to speak?

Yes, Americans are the articulate ones in the English-speaking world.

It always makes me ashamed whenever I see a British child speaking on television, because they invariably use language and sentence structure that is beyond the grasp of quite a large number of American adults.

What's all this, then?

I'm sure a lot of Brits feel the same way about Americans.

Can't tell if this is a joke or not. If it is, good one.

Cockney. Rhyming. Slang. I rest my case.

I'd probably have to go for the Indians for speaking the most articulate, homogeneous English. The folks on the home islands all have their own variant gobbeldygook, the Aussies love their eight syllable make-words, and 'Muricans cover the field from intelligible to WTF?

In before the "English is an evolving/living/adaptive language" crowd, all of whom deliberately miss the point.

Gentlemen, our MP saw the PM this AM and the PM wants more LSD from the PIB by tomorrow AM or PM at the latest. I told the PM's PPS that AM was NBG so tomorrow PM it is for the PM nem. con. Give us a fag or I'll go spare. Now, the fiscal deficit with regard to the monetary balance, the current financial year excluding invisible exports, but adjusted of course for seasonal variations and the incremental statistics of the fiscal and revenue arrangements for the forthcoming annual budgetary period terminating in April.

Can this be a Pro-Muslim deportation thread? I would love to see another country try it out before we do.

Obviously, the ability to speak English is something that only immigrants should be held to.

Does American English count?
 
2009-08-12 11:26:17 PM
Meh, if you can't speak at least two languages, you have two choices:

1 - do well in science and math

2 - learn a second language you ignorant fark.

"Charlie bit me! Ow Charlie! That hurt" is beyond comprehension for most American adults?

Or maybe it's just the pronunciation and tons of slang they use that makes it indecipherable for us.

In other words, UK schools/teachers aren't doing too well teaching English to immigrant kids.

/ I was a very lazy kid, and even I managed to learn some English as a third language in a part of the world that wasn't really English-speaking.

Just like Stalone movies, all British films should be required to have subtitles...in English.

Best thing I have seen Britain do in a while. The host society deserves the right to preserve itself, be it any country. If you want to live in that country, become apart of that countries culture.

soy_bomb: Just like Stalone movies, all British films should be required to have subtitles...in English.

I find the sound quality in lots of English programs to be absolutely dreadful. Background noise, unbalanced levels, and then someone dropping every other consonant makes it difficult to follow. And I was born in Liverpool.

Should check out the dutch kids...
(so should the brits)

That was impressive

But also in the workplace. I would walk into a room and everyone would switch to english so I could feel more comfortable, made me totally ashamed I could not speak dutch)

Them Britians can't even spell color right. They use a 'U'. How stupid is that?
 
2009-08-12 11:49:50 PM
Excepting "whilst." No one should be required to say "whilst."

Yeah, because clearly Dutch is as important as English, so you clearly must be a stupid American *smug* See we CULTURED people can speak every language on earth fluently without thinking, unlike you Americans *smug*

Bernard: The fact that you needed to know was not known at the time that the now known need to know was known, and therefore those that needed to advise and inform the Home Secretary perhaps felt that the information that he needed as to whether to inform the highest authority of the known information was not yet known, and therefore there was no authority for the authority to be informed because the need to know was not, at that time, known or needed.

Not just Britains, but Canadians....

I got a ration when my good Canadian friend found that I spelled color as 'colour'....

I think it has something to do with the 6 years in Alaska....being seperated by a continents worth of Canadians and 'Eh?' from the continental US

/Had to remove the U from 'color' the first time.
