I sort of feel guilty being an Englishman, people like you go out of their way to learn our language, and also others, putting in lots of effort. Whilst doing that, we just sit on our backsides not bothering, in safe knowledge that wherever we go, English will do.
you obviously still haven't been to China. My mother never learned English, for her German is already a foreign language. After she was in Shanghai and Beijing my mother told me: "Compared to the saleswomen there, I am Shakespeare."
