English should be changed
it's too hard to learn

I think it's very easy..
Depends of course..

Yeah.. see I think people only say that over here... because every person on GSB who learned english as a second language said it was extremely easy.

Yup, and I think English is one of those languages you learn when you're listening to it (or reading)

Of course it depends, but it's much easier for me than Italian, Latin or French..

No, I think it's easy. I've been learning Italian for 8 years and I'm not as half good as in English, which I've been learining for 4 years. I don't want to say that I'm not good in Italian, I want to say English is really easy.

If you are going to a country to live and work, then you should learn the language.

End of story.

Why?

I hate to say this, but your opinion is not "end of story" Wink

Pardon me. I got carried away.
Don't be so harsh.
Honestly, I agree.
America is a free country and all. It's open for foreigners to explore their destinations and to live their lives as free citizens.
However, there are certain rules to abide by.
Though it's not written anywhere, if you are going to live in America, you should try and learn the language, no questions asked.
English is the number one international language in all of the world.
Failure to communicate in English can cause many hardships in these foreigners' lives.

Less than 6% if the worlds population speak English as a mother tongue.

I think she meant it as it's the most common language everyone has in common as a second language....although i do believe that spanish could rival that hmmm.

English actually did not entirely originate in England. It just flourished their as a common language after the 'drafts' if you like, of the English language were introduced by Germanic invaders. The map is also inncorrect...or old, because Quebec should be gray and New Brunswick should be light blue.

I don't think there's much of a point in learning English since in a few years, maybe fifty, maybe a hundred, who knows, it'll split into a bunch of different languages. Like a modern Sanskrit.

This is off topic, but Welsh and Celtic are the coolest sounding languages ever.

Agreed, but I'm betting you've never hear Aramaic. They come in a close tie.

O_o It sounds nothing the sorts.

Maybe because I know Welsh, but it doesn't at all sound like it. It's more a blend of Greek, Arabic, and Latin...sorta. Difficult to describe. You need to hear it. I heard it in a cathedral in Jeruselam once. They have old recording of the Bible and such, but it's hard to come across nowadays.

Urdu is also a beautiful language. Lots of f's and z' s and Kh's and it's just so...pretty. Do we have a topic for dicussing languages themselves? Like, how nice they sound or something?

I live in Glasgow in Scotland, where everyone speaks English, but at home I speak Galic and I think it would be great if people spoke Galic in like, a shop or somthing bloody somewhere other than the highlands.
Anyway I think that was offtopic, I dunno.
Sorry..
