In Europe how has everyone learnt English and is it a prioritised language to learn as basically everyone knows it. Because in Australia that’s the native language and the only one I know. But I find that most people from Europe know English aswell as their native language, just crazy to me How did everyone learn English ?

English is the universal language because of extreme colonization by the English, not because of American pop culture. In Europe we usually start learning English at age 10 or around there, so many of us have studied English in school for more than 10 years. Not surprising that almost everyone speaks English.
2022-10-03 16:58

Not really, it's easy to have a passion/subjects or something that you really like that will push you to learn english. I actually learned more by myself than at school where it kinda forced upon us in an uninteresting way. It's also just so easy to learn through internet nowadays in a fun way, subtitles movies/animes/video games/forums etc...

For me i just started watching youtube like cod/minecraft videos at like 10 years old and learned most of my english from that. Just over time you went from it being difficult to understand to just randomly being good at english. I remember watching a minecraft "lets play" series where i didn't understand much at first but by the 50th episode a couple months later i basically spoke english pretty well. Next was learning basic gramma i school and then you just kinda learn the language.

English Language and English literature are 2 different subjects within our education. English language is more about writing and speaking normal English and is taught from a young age. English lit is more about poems, Shakespeare and how devolve meaning from written texts... You learn that in high school and can study it in university... that's probably what he means by advanced English... it's a dead end university degree and most people who do it don't end up in any writing jobs. Some become teachers...

The same with French classes here, we first learn how to write it and the, starting around 13-14 it's more about French literature and poetry But I sincerely think we should keep learning to write it properly even at an older age. I know French is very complicated (to write at least) but people keep doing the same mistakes over and over again, that's embarrassing

Third person singular is (for the most part) just tenses in the third person; meaning we probably learned this in like 3rd grade along with tenses.

There's definitely more to it but I haven't taken a basic English class in probably 9 years. Languages are just so complex for non-natives; it's much harder to infer what things are going to be if you didn't grow up with the language. Learning by notes vs learning by surroundings is completely different.

Absolutely agree with this. it's much more difficult for non-natives. We had to speak in English in school the whole time; this continued for 12 years, so the culture was there. And the teachers particularly paid attention to the grammar. Let me give you a simple example. Tense: I went I go I will be going Third person singular: He has She has ProJoe24 has I have we have they have

Yeah those are just conjugations of the meaning "to have". In French class we learned it as conjugation and not third person singular, that is if I'm understanding it correctly. I.e. Aller-To Go Je Vais - I [am] go[ing] Tu Vas - You [are] go[ing] Il/Elle Va - He/She [is] go[ing] etc etc. In brackets is inferred information to make the sentence more coherent when translated.

Verbiage is verbiage, it doesn't necessarily modify between lower and upper levels of usage besides finding more discrete, however uncommon words to speak in a more specific capacity than general language. Words that people may rarely hear, or never, something like "pulchritudinous" (which is a bit obscure imo) or "circumambulate" (which wholly explains itself and I think is a quite pretty word). But I would consider the delineation between more basic or advanced usage of language, of any language, not just English, to be distinguished more grammatically or syntactically than anything else. The kind of thing that someone would say they "struggle to read" because it has too many pauses, grammatical flourishes that they are unfamiliar with, it isn't "plain" writing in any sense of the word. (And since you don't explicitly "perceive" grammatic annotation in speech, the only way someone would confuse something when speaking to someone is according to a loftier employment of terminology, something perhaps related to a technical field, like the meme of a doctor speaking way over their patient's capacity for understanding.) In an example of the difference between basic English, which can be seen in 99% of HLTV posts and needs no illustration, and more advanced English, I would highlight something such as the opening paragraph of Melville's "Moby-Dick," which I don't consider at-all difficult to understand, but would certainly turn some people off who are only used to the expediently described Twitter/text-message syntax of informational delivery. Consider: "Call me Ishmael. Some years ago—never mind how long precisely—having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me." Melville was imo one of the few masters of English, and his English is certainly very advanced throughout his novel even for native speakers to have trouble understanding it, and not merely as a caveat of the era or "age" of his dialect (when they still used words that have fallen from contemporary usage, like "ere"). Moby-Dick in fact has one of the highest counts of unique words among all English novels, average a new unique word usage, by numeric count over 16,000, averaging somewhere around one per every single paragraph (rough memory speaking). Attempt to write a book that spans 660 pages and use a new, unique word in every paragraph, I'm certain you will feel yourself challenged short of even the halfway mark.

I watched Cartoon Network as a child and it used to be broadcast in English back then. It wasn't a lot of in depth conversation going on obviously but it gave a good headstart. After that the usual education, primary, secondary school, university lectures many of them held in English etc. I personally find it a bit sad that most people think learning English is now even more important than their native tongue, it's a sort of conformism to the capitalist "values" which I'd rather reject but people will decide what suits them best.

Formal education has had little to no impact on my English level, most of my teachers knew the language worse than I do. I've just been absorbed by various content in the English language from an young age, so I achieved fluency at the age of 14 already. Of course, I'd been working on correcting my grammar, extending my vocabulary and stuff when I felt like I'm not good enough, but now I don't really care and just go with the flow.

Finland HARD4ENCE
Every language is hard to "master" when it comes to nitty gritty of it. That being said, English is still one of the easiest in that regard. Compare English with 3 grammatical cases to Finnish that has 15 of different kind. There you have it.

It's difficult for foreign non-native learners because the English language is unpredictable, for example the way we use the letter X to make the sound of a Z like in the word Xanax and Xerox or how we say moose for both singular and plural instead of mooses but mouse is singular and mice is plural, shits wack. I know that there are plenty of harder languages to learn because I've learned a few myself but it's not exactly the easiest either, that's just IMO.

Pronunciations and plurals are something that can trip foreigners up. But even if you said "There are too many mouses in the houses"... most people will know exactly what you mean. Speaking English in one form or another seems easy to grasps... the plurals and oddities in how to pronounce words probably gets refined through experience... but you can 100% get by in a english speaking country making those mistakes.

Be as it may, being a 'relatively' easy language is not a bad thing, if anything it's the opposite. A language is used for the means of communication and therefore should be as easy and simple as humanly possible. There is literally no value in a language being complex and hard to learn. Just makes it harder for foreigners to adopt it. This is why I think English is in a great space in this regard and became so wide spread (in addition to the massive exposure the rest of the world has to the English speaking world).

when 90% of all media you consume as a child is in that language, youre bound to learn it at some point at least thats how i started learning it (watched a lot of cartoon network as a child)

At least over here, your average person is still abysmal at English, though that will probably change as time goes on. Most media here still gets dubbing and depending where you live German might be more helpful to learn than English anyway.

Spain AlfonGD
here in spain we can choose to learn english or german since 1st year of primary school (6yo), but we're pretty bad in general with languages, so i wouldn't say people learn them from there. for me it was mostly because of music, videogames and youtube/twitch, and i picked it up pretty quickly, not because i'm good with languages though, but i've never had a problem with english in particular edit: also there are places that have to learn catalan/valencian/galician/euskera, so maybe there they struggle more, i'm not sure about it though, it's just an assumption :)

In Europe every country has 2nd language to learn in school. Most of the time its English nowadays, back in the days it was german or russian. So yeah, every kid is forced to learn English so he can grow up and travel anywhere. I personally got my english from internet (playing CS, watching youtube, watching sports, tutorials etc.). In EU we have a lot of countries so if we want to play some good CS, we have to speak 1 language and thats English. (im not from rus)

Some of the basics at school. When I was at elementary school I learned most vocabulary was from games. Then later from movies/series, stream, youtube, but I made most of the progress when I started reading novels. However, that's mostly just understanding of English, composing sentences and speaking/pronunciation is worse.

Videogames, playing for international teams in Unreal Tournament at a very young age and CS:S after that thought me a shitton of english. 4. TV shows and movies

big reason why a lot of Southerner's in America learn Spanish and Northerner's learn French; it's far more beneficial to know these languages. Although much more localized for American's, it opens boundaries and allows for communication with even more people. It just so happened that English speaking nations (America and Britain) were by far the most influential countries for the 20th century.
2022-10-03 16:04
Because United Kingdom was the biggest colonial empire, and language itself is not that hard to learn and to speak on it. French and spanish could've been the ones as they are one of the easiest to learn as well, but their empires weren't that influential as british was

Denmark Whoopz
In Denmark children start to learn English in like the 3rd or 4th grade. I've heard Scandinavia in general are some of the best at learning English. I assume it's because some of the words also came from us (vikings) in the first place. There's also the media exposure and video games. We don't dub stuff in Denmark for the most part.
