Do you guys in China only forgive poeple if they agree to give a brojob? i heard it's a tradition. Look how many poeple will fall into this, i mean how often this happens?

In Denmark we speak English almost as a second language, and we sometimes use English words to fill in for words we've forgotten or to express ourselves better.

Do u think eventually most European countries will be all English speaking?
2018-11-13 15:54
Nah, but i think people might use English more in day-to-day life
2018-11-13 17:01
I saw an article on the BBC about worries of 'linguicide' in the Netherlands because Dutch are starting to neglect their own language. It's nice that you Nordics have such progressive ideas but actually jettisoning your own national language is downright sad

So are french canadians; but they still speak French as their native language, since their family does as well.

Are your thoughts on English or Portuguese?
2018-11-13 15:57
tbh at some point you just start thinking in english
2018-11-13 16:07
Can confirm, goes the same for dreaming. But I wouldn't say it's 100% English, for me anyway, sometimes I dream in polish, sometimes in English and the same for thinking.
2018-11-13 17:17
I studied a lot of languages thru my school years, Swedish, Spanish, German, Latin and of course English. Finnish is so very different from most languages and I find English and German the most "full" ones if you know what I mean. I mostly think in English. It's such a complete language, you can express thoughts and ideas to fuller extent than in Finnish.

I guess that’s why when people ask What’s that mean in English it sounds weird to a English person but makes sense to a person who understands the language.

To be fair i learned English by myself thanks to hltv and movies + a few guides. I use it more often than German and French (we learned in school) but not as much and my native. (if i talk in English to my friends / guys from around the city they will beat me)
2018-11-13 15:39
Your English is good, I also learned a lot from just watching TV. The English language kinda surrounds us in a way and you get to learn from that.
2018-11-13 15:50
I speak English in English classes, and in my leisure time when chatting with people who don't know German. Sometimes I talk in English to a particular friend of mine, though in a purposely broken Mexican accent (an old meme between us). Other than that I speak my native language, though I do watch a lot of English entertainment media.

2018-11-13 15:51
In brazil almost nobody speak english, so that is why is hard for me to practice, i can understand and read, but if i really try to speak its hard, cause i almost never speak in english, i only type ofc here on the internet.

Native language: 99% of the time (dutch), I only speak english when there is a language barrier which rarely occurs. I even talk more german than english because I live close to the border and since germans speak shit english I have to try as best as I can in german
2018-11-13 16:18
Mostly native, speaking english online, and when we are joking with friends haha, and bc most of the ppl here dont know much of it, if for example they are sitting next to us and we want to say smth about them we mix english here and there
2018-11-13 17:07
English whilst on the computer. Swedish whilst not on the computer.

I only speak English on the internet, because the people from Brazil don't understand English, nobody speaks English here. I thank the people of hltv for helping me daily with my English, which unfortunately I've to learn alone because English schools are very expensive.

Finnish when talking with family or IRL friends, when filling out government shit or buying something in a store. English pretty much everywhere online, and in my job since there are a lot of people from all across Europe in my office and English is the common language we all understand.

IRL: -Norwegian for the most time, like 98% -Last 2% english, sometimes because of work, meet up with exchange students or meet one of my friends that went to a private school their whole childhood and they've been taught to speak only english so most of the time they'll end up speaking english out of habit even though they're fully norwegian Internet: 70 % english, 30 % norwegian, 100 % memes

i never spoke english in my life, i only use it to write in sites like HLTV or reddit. But it's useful when i can't find anime subbed in spanish for instance, so i watch it in english, plus you can watch videos and livestreams that are way better and entertaining than those normie ass hispanic ones.

As I'm currently neither living in a german nor english speaking country, I (apart from my part time job as a german teacher) don't use either of them a lot, but probably still more english than german. As for my thoughts, it is probably (just looking at the two) about 75% english and 25% german.
