Should America adopt English as it's official language? IMO, no. It'd be inconvenient. I do however believe that english usage should be super encouraged. Like not smoking. Smoking's still legal, but it's discouraged.

No, and isn't English usage already encouraged?

Not really. I see no smoking crap all the time. I've never seen a "speak english plawks" poster. And I live in So cal, land of Hispanic immigrants.

Isn't English already the official language? I always thought Spanish was just a secondary language in the US.

Speak for yourself.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

realised and realized are not synonomous

realised is an adjective that means brought to and end or completed

English is such a balls language.

Everyone should learn German and Japanese. Now, just change "everyone" to "I" and we'll be set.

Also, no. English shouldn't be the official language. There shouldn't be an official language.

Touche.

Although its more an amalgamation of about 5 or 6 European languages, not just one 'indo-European' language.

please explain how this is relevant to the topic.


TS said "America" instead of the United States of America. Like most from our country, we're so lazy we leave off the first two. I actually struggled not to say "Like most Americans...."

It's a habit.

No, we have no official language. That's why everything comes in 3 or 4 damn languages, if not more.

I don't see how the US can be blamed for this. You should go and fight a couple of unjust wars, and try to piss Europe off as much as possible. Try electing someone from the Southwest of Canada too, that should help.

English should be the international language. It's easy and convenient.

If English is hard, Russian and Chinese are impossible.

Actually, its one of the hardest languages to learn, for many reasons. There's hundereds of different ways to play with syntax, not to mention to, too, and two, and their, there, and they're.

No, I don't mean that everyone has to abandon their native language, but rather that for universal communication, English should be the choice of language. It practically already is, but it should be official and enforced and standardized.

I'm a native of China and I can speak English about 1000 times better than I can Chinese.
