Sprechen zee Eengleesh?

I read an article earlier which stated that 1.2bn people in the world are learning another language apart from their mother tongue. That’s 17% of the current estimated world population. Given the natural arrogance of us Brits about language I suspect that the number of people learning another language in the UK will be tiny. After all, everyone in the world speaks English don’t they? If they don’t we simply speak very loud and very slow to make foreign speakers understand us don’t we? 😉

About justwilliam1959

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
