That's lovely Ben. Thanks.
Beautiful. English does connect us all but I feel Britain / America / Australia are particularly lucky that English is the main Langauage. There are so many people who come to UK just to Learn English and there is a big market to teach it in Japan.
That's awesome. The Scottish have a very strong Accent, even when they speak English, Thanks.
Lovely. I'm glad it helped with your tour of Europe. I remember I had to use a Pocket Dictionary to order a Pizza when on holiday in Paris. Thanks.
The French words for boat and ship - un bateau, un navire - are both masculine!
And I walked into a store ten times and order meat in French, right off the Champs Elysee's, and the bastard owner always corrected my french, sneered and laughed at my American butt, but took my money and gave me my meat. France has no real Navy.
I went to Hungary in 1982, and came across very few people who spoke English; none spoke German, as far as I knew. Yet I was able to communicate with them easily. I think they're experts at body language!
