Don’t you think it’s terrible of us English speakers to make fun of foreigners who try to speak English?
I know that when I was learning English people made fun of me when I tried to pronounce English words but frankly ‘Cat’ pronunciation is so very different to human speech that I am surprised I can make myself understood at all and when it comes to writing… well you have to remember that Cat’s don’t have a written language which means that the mere fact I can speak and write English is a work of considerable genius. Or is that the work of a considerable genius? You decided I am too modest to say.
When I hear people making fun of others wrestling with English I tend to feel very sorry for the poor devils who are being laughed at, except when it’s the French but that goes without saying doesn’t it?
I also feel terrible when I see articles or indeed blogs making fun of foreign words that are innocent in the language they were being used in but tend to make us English speakers fall over with laugher.
Below is a good example of what I am talking about a chemist shop in Brazil!
Human language is funny isn’t it!
