The problem with getting foreigners to learn the language is they'll be taught by someone who speaks a standard, clear pronunciation of that language, not taking into account dialects. I'm sure they'd have trouble understanding Marney. wink.gif I tend to speak with my Essex accent if i'm taking to mates, but put some effort into removing it when talking to strangers.

So hey how about them Nicks?



Article's a bit rubbish, but it's the first news result about the show. Man got ripped to shreds, says a lot about his closed-door immigration policies. It was pretty hilarious when he tried to conflate completely unrelated ideas and got stomped by Dimbleby. And when Jack Straw laid down the law. And whenever Bonnie Greer said anything.

The whole lynch mob attitude of the crowd and panel was kind of ironic...

I think it's stupid how people think that people have to "accept other cultures", nobody is forcing anyone to accept shit. You can live a normal life without "accepting other cultures" whatever that even means.

I just find it weird that people think that immigrants come in and then force others to accept their cultures. I think most people get confused between the words tolerate and acceptance, now who's the idiot foreigner who can't speak or understand English, eh?

Although I do admit that it's annoying when immigrants come and then act like idiots. Generally speaking nearly every where you go you're not ever going to get First gen immigrants who will completely integrate.

Well ofcourse they act like idiots because they are in a new place. I wouldn't expect a foriegner to jump right into a new place without any adjustment period.

OPX -

The US has no standard of language for a reason. And as it stands, we're the only nation to do so. Further, do as I do and learn the language of thine enemy; it will aide you when the nuclear storm comes. I assure you brother, it says in the good book. Read Micah 7:13 and you shall know!

Passionate Homo -

I'll say this: You sound like a douche. Not a flame, but really. A fucking douche. How petty and small minded are you, exactly? Here's a standing bet; I'll give you a hundred dollars (American, you foreign bastard) when you graduate for every foreigner who graduates with you that remains in your country to start practicing medicine. You show me one single slanty eyed wop with a turban fetish who starts up El Sheik De Rotti Canis' Pharmaceticila Company and I'll show you a green dog.

anomalous -

You're an idiot. The reason countries like America have succeeded and continue to do so is because they make the small minority feel repressed and thus work harder for a brighter future. Well, except for the niggers. But then, we've handed them everything since we dragged them from the bush, now haven't we.

Yes they do.

Darth Sexy:

Now that I have the recipe for curry, is there any reason for them to stay?

Leon Kennedy: (stupid fucking game, off topic)

Has a really valid point here. Try it out next time your at Uni (snicker). When you see those black kids with their African club sign, thrown one up that says "Whites Club" and see how well it goes over. You'll be surprised to see what real diversity looks like then. Like the inside of a festering worm ridden vagina I gather.

Mek:

Total fucking irony out of you, Paki. You're brown so you're allowed to accept whatever level of tolerance you want. Well, isn't that shit after all? Oh good, the funny little brown people can decide for themselves wether or not their culture will be tolerated on an individual basis. Don't act so high and mighty when it's you we're talking about here. It's not you that's the problem, it's your mentality that is. And I don't care how many generations off the boat you are, it never fucking changes.

In the paper today some twat was complaining that Australia is a racist country and then goes on to tell his story about how his Asian restaurant is so successful in - wait for it - Australia. If we were racist we wouldn't go to an Asian restaurant.

Yes, it's fine for him to generalise that ALL white Australians are racist because of one incident that happened to him nine years ago, but if I did that to any minority rolleyes.gif

No, there was one Indian who got set on fire, and is still under police investigation but they said it is a real possibility that he either set himself on fire or the perpetrators might not have even been White. I don't know where they got the idea from considering it was at night and dark and there were no witnesses...

Even so, does that make all Anglo-Australians racist? Just because of the actions of a few? Isn't that generalising? rolleyes.gif

everybody is racist in a little way. we Asians are racist too. these Indians ARE racist because they bring the whole issue down to race without even finding out what really happens.

considering that whites used to enslave the world, it is now everybody is crying "racist" whenever they are not happy with a white person in general. if a black guy call another black "Nigga", it's not racist. but if a white guy called it, u be damned to hell.

No, it doesn't make Anglo-Australians racist. Those who always bring any issue down to race are racists.

Unless you can pass a basic english language test you shouldn't be allowed into the UK.
I would accept it as reasonable if somewhere like Germany (for example) told people not to bother visiting unless you could speak basic german. I think this is the least any foreigner to a country could do to at least show some respect.

wow, that would effectively kill the tourism-industry in any place that would pass that law

but anyways, yes I do feel that if you decide to stay in a country for a while you should at least try to learn its' language, but really, sometimes its not even neccesary. I worked for 4 months in greece as a beachboy for a watersport company, managed perfectly using dutch, english, french and italian. not greek. why? all my customers were tourists. same goes for alot of people here in amsterdam - the guys working in coffeeshops (read, 'hasjbars', we call em coffeeshops) especially. most of their clientele are (mostly british) tourists so anyone speaking only english can do that job. even tho I'm dutch, I speak dutch and applied for a job here in holland, I wouldnt have gotten the job if I wouldnt know how to speak english. the company I work for survives because of tourists who cannot speak dutch. tourists who wouldnt have been allowed to enter my country would we have this stupid policy.

now, in the broader perspective of immigration, people tend to forget their own history. australia? would have been full of aboriginals if it werent for a bunch of europeans looking for a better future. same goes for the states. why blame people who are looking to improve their life for bringing a bit of their culture? then blame your great-great-grandfather for bringing yours.

hey, we're all a bunch of africans in the end
