I didn't used to, but my parents decided to move to Australia.

As they don't speak dutch in australian schools, I learned to speak english.

Anyway, if you didn't speak english, how would you cope on this site??

Cheers

it's the language that makes beef stew from schmutz. compared with the English in Shakespeare's day it is chock full of foreign words, bits and pieces of foreign idioms, that makes for a rich language full of color and capable of expressing fine shades of meaning. read more about it in "the story of English" [both a book and a video].

there is a saying:

"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that the English language is as pure as a crib-house whore.
It not only borrows words from other languages, it has on occasion, chased other languages down dark alley-ways, clubbed them unconscious, and rifled their pockets for new vocabulary."


(there are other versions)
