yeah, sorry if you were offended(Original post by Cynthi007)
Ok. thanks for explaining. I think we just use formal English and we are supposed to use it. When we analysed politeness at university, there was also just formal language. maybe I got a wrong image and developed an ideal. :-) we seldom deal with collocial English. I only remember some lessons we talked about pidgins ans creolisation but that has nothing to do with the use in England. so it was nice to explain.
And actually passed?
