  1. When people make fun of foreign accents, they say things like, “You struggle with your first and only language Becky, their brain is running more than one server!” Bilingual people deserve a lot of respect. That’s everything I know about English and Bad English.

  2. It astounds me when I hear people disparage foreign English speakers. Is it even aware that it’s a *second* language? 7 out of 10 times, they speak it better.

  3. I’m glad I don’t have to translate into my second language because I learned English at such a young age that it’s become second nature to me. My friend is the same way; he spent his early years in an English-speaking country. When we talk, we often switch between Dutch and English on the fly.

  4. Taking German classes in Germany felt like moving from an A student to a struggling B student. It took a lot more effort to get the 1.7 grades.

    On the positive side, having to deliver a speech in German in front of a German-speaking audience dispelled any fears I had about public speaking. Mostly because I didn’t know how to say qualm in German.

  5. My English is awful on “poor English days,” as I call them. It’s really difficult for me because I can’t seem to find the right words.

  6. It’s much worse if you’re trilingual and fluent in all three languages. All gets jumbled up in your brain, and you start making up hybrid cross-language terms, and people have no idea what you’re talking about.

  7. Is it just me, or am I the only non-native English speaker who lives in their home country but still thinks in English for the most part?
