Hard to say... i would guess that almost all younger people speak basic english but many old fucks dont know a single word. You will be fine in big(ger) cities because most people there speak at least a big of english.

I actually got surprised by a lady near Frankfurt who was around 50-60 and could speak English. I always assumed that older people in Western Germany are more likely to speak English.
2020-02-23 00:34
What about jobs and stuff? I assume they expect you to know German.
2020-02-23 02:00
Thats true most of the time but there are also many jobs where people speak english especially in international companies. Very common in the IT sector.

In Belgrade and bigger citiesbI would say that you can have a basic conversation with 10-15% of population. When it comes to younger people I would say up to 30%.

everyone born and educated in Sweden and is under 50 can speak English. we have 3 subjects (Swedish English and math) that you are not allowed to fail) if you fail English you are not allowed to go to high school for example.

babbel.com/en/magazine/best-non-native-e.. according to this probably biased list we are top 2 in the world amongst non English speaking countries it has to be pretty advanced. I do not know a single person who can't speak English good enough to be understood. You also have to be near fluent to get almost any job so it is probably the subject that has the most priority.

I had a C in English so if you look for comparison I am the average i guess.
2020-02-23 00:05
It's probably not that high. I'm pretty sure that the reason why Nordic countries are so good at English is the fact that they don't dub their movies and only have subtitles (maybe excluding some family movies?) whereas Germany dub (almost?) every movie which can be annoying in my opinion. I'm also pretty sure that many other countries in Europe require you to pass English to go further but the lowest requirements are pretty much a basic conversation in English.
2020-02-23 00:40
even muslims who cant speak swedish?
2020-02-23 00:00
"everyone born and educated in Sweden"

i don't see how that relates to our muslim population. i went to school with a lot of muslims and i've never met someone who didn't speak swedish fluently. in my high school there were even a few programmes for health and social care where basically only somali girls went and they also spoke fluent swedish. hell we even had one afghan and one iraqi refugee in my class who had only been in sweden for like 2 years prior and even they spoke swedish, far from perfect but definitely good enough to get by and use in school. with all due respect, you don't know what you're talking about

If you were born in NZ and you can't speak English, you're fucking autistic source: am chinese

That doesn't change all the Chinese/Koreans who are born here who speak no english
2020-02-23 03:39
Like I said, if you were born here and you haven't learnt english by 7-8, you're either disabled or not going to school
2020-02-23 03:40
theres non english schools u know
2020-02-23 03:41
English is a compulsory subject in all schools in NZ, at least up until Year 11
2020-02-23 03:42
Theres maori schools, tekura, i know of a chinese education place near where i live theyre not english credits theyre literacy credits
2020-02-23 03:45
They're still required to teach English Also, most Chinese education schools are for kids who weren't born in NZ
2020-02-23 03:46
nzqa.govt.nz/framework/explore/domain.do.. where does it specify english
2020-02-23 03:50
lmao you're pointing out NCEA, which only comes into effect from Year 11 I'm honestly starting to doubt whether you are from NZ, since every New Zealander should know that
2020-02-23 03:51
The curriculum isn't mandatory before ncea though
2020-02-23 03:56
Lmao good one
2020-02-23 03:56
That literally says it's mandatory lmao
2020-02-23 04:04
For english teaching schools
2020-02-23 04:06
They're also all unit standard credits, most of which you get from working, not from school
2020-02-23 03:52
Yeah but they're literacy not English, note the difference
2020-02-23 03:59
And they're also from NCEA, an education system that only comes into effect from year 11 onwards Honestly can't be fucked with your shit anymore, if you're that fussed about it search the content up yourself
2020-02-23 04:03
2020-02-23 03:46
I'm not really seeing how this is proving anything, these schools are only meant to supplement what you're already learning in school
2020-02-23 03:48
They offer exams no? I just found it on google
2020-02-23 03:48
Yes, and they supplement what you learn normally, aka english
2020-02-23 03:48
idk i found that one on google, but nothing says you have to take english
2020-02-23 03:50
when you start learning english at the age 6 until the age of like 18 or if you go to univerisity like age 21 than you have like 15 years of learning english atleast 1 hour around 3 or more times a week plus I personally just learned alot from watching tv shows like simpsons and stuff on tv and playing games online

In Germanic/Nordic countries I guess its like 80% (everyone who is not old) in Czechia its actually 35% (fluent) of the whole population, but in the developed and most important cities like Prague, Brno, Pilsen or Olomouc everyone speaks some english. In Prague and Brno there are tons of fluent speakers.... In Poland and Slovakia (Central EU), it will be something like in Czechia I guess and in east/south it will be worse exept of Croatia/Slovenia due to tourism.

In the cities I'd say 70-80% of people can speak English, but most people only know the basics sadly I mean you could get by quite easily, but there's a good chance that you would interact with someone who either doesn't speak English at all or very well
2020-02-23 00:49
Most young people will understand you and know basic english i guess, the problem comes from older people... and thats why France got a shit reputation in english worldwide.
