    Oh, well I understand that English is widely spoken , and I understand its the language which is basically used to do bussines but it is arrogant to tink everyone has to speak english . Im not saying that is what you think , but thinking so is. I must have skipped howards post.

    knowing more than one language is better than just knowing 1. So dont feel bad about not being diverse,. YOU are DIVERSE.

    What does "knowing" a language mean? Speaking, understanding what's being said, reading, writing? Fluently, a couple of words, or something in between?

    I find it quite pathetic that people whose native language is English don't even bother to write it properly. You have all the time you need when typing a reply in a forum where anyone in the world can see your so-called linguistic skills.

    I consider knowing the ability to read, write, and speak rather fluently. And Mictlantechuhtli, I totally agree. I get sickened by people who can't even write in their native language. It just shows laziness.

    Thank GOD someone shares my sorrow. I'm an English major, and it drives me absolutely crazy when people don't use proper English yet claim it to be their first language. English happens to be my second language, though I started speaking and learning it at a young age. I was raised to speak Gaelic, a somewhat dead language of Ireland, and I was practically forced to learn Japanese when my parents moved me there. English may be a difficult language, but with the proper tools, anyone can write and speak it properly.

    And that's enough of my little tangent. =)

    I'd also like to comment that I agree with Mictlantecuhtli. The intentional misuse of the English language is one of the top things that irritate me on these forums. I wish that everyone on the forums would completely ignore any request for help from someone who writes like that. I don't know what causes that behavior, but I don't like it.

    Hmm.


    Is English that difficult to learn ? I myself can only speak English, however from anothers perspective, how much harder is English to learn compared to lets say Russian, Italian, Japanese or even Spanish ?

    I don't think English would be that hard to learn the basic conversational version. When you get into crazy stuff like they are supposed to teach you in, well I don't remember what grades... Past participles and stuff like that, I can see that being hard to grasp.

    I speak Russian (native) , English , Latvian. I don't think that English is harder to learn than Russian.
