    Why are you being so defensive? I was just trying to be nice since you seemed to think that everyone is against you.

    Exactly, taking it way out of proportion. If he is to survive in England he will have to learn that not everyone is out to get him.

    This is just as bad as the generalisations about Americans being unintelligent. I have seen some pretty good arguements which demonstrates that we are pretty linguistic with respect to other languages.

    I wouldn't mind learning other languages if it weren't for various reasons such as updating the language. Why should I bother learning a language if I cannot have a decent conversation using it?

    Most people in America speak Spanish BTW

    It's mainly from the media doing this, but people should realise this. Don't forget in England many decades ago the fuss with terrorism was with the Irish
