I live in The Netherlands. That should have said enough if you knew anything about The Netherlands cuz we're probably one of the better english speaking countries (together with scandinavian countries) without having it as 1st language. All dutch get teached in english, in fact I even got teached in Dutch, English, French and German.
With English we start in school when we are 10 years old, I think nowadays our dutch children even start much earlier. French and German we start with at the age of 12. (for the latter too it's not for every levels of secundary education)
Also it comes to no suprise you think most americans won't understand. Why?
Most americans probably can't even point out where my country is. Most if they here dutch would call it german, lol! (which if you know both languages is just plain stupid to say)
We're one of the most well integrated minorities in dutch society unlike moroccan, turk, arab, africans and so on.
Also if you think cuz my family is from Hong Kong that you think I speak even a little chinese... well I don't really. I speak english when I'm in Hong Kong lol. My parents never speak chinese, even though yes they can. But they have been in The Netherlands for over 3 decades.
For your country's sake I hope the 99.9% number you mentioned is incorrect, it seriously makes me questioning the american knowledge of what's going on outside the US.
For the rest... thanks for posting here Hector, you're welcome!!

I was being sarcastic for the most part, but you're right about Americans being geographically and culturally ignorant. Most Americans think that only the US, England, and Australia speak English. Anyone else from everywhere else is a barbarian speaking foreign languages.
I'll never forget this girl in one of my college English courses who decided to speak up during a class discussion about traveling to Europe. She stated that her parents had gone to Paris the year before, and offered her the chance to come along. To directly quote her, "[She] won't travel to places where people speak funny languages and eat crappy food, so [she] had to put her foot down and say no."
Quite possibly the biggest moment ever.
But even I'm guilty of not mastering a second language...I'm still not comfortable speaking Spanish, even though I understand it well.

I always have a thing for Asian girls.
And I know that European people speaks English very well.
10/10, you're one of the most beautiful beings on Earth.

Many americans should realise their entire society has been build by the british, french, spanish, dutch and probably more people. And we all should thank the romans, greek and many others. The US didn't built itself, even though you guys had to fight the british off of course... just like the indonesian people had to fight off the dutch. Cuz we and the british were probably too obsessed by power. (cuz well in all honesty, we did rule back then lol) Then again, that's maybe a lesson Romney should learn now.
And yeah I love history! For example I still love our 'Raid on the Medway' back then. (sorry for going off topic but I enjoy talking)
That actually could have been an even bigger history point if we, the dutch, actually moved into London itself. We could have made an attempt to end their royal family and so on... but we didn't, we just stole some stuff and some ships, including their flagship. But instead of using that impressive ship we totally broke the ship in pieces again and used those pieces to build our own ships LOL! I think that's an even better way to insult them then just using the ship haha.
It's just sad that in my country many dutch people are not proud of that time at all. But then again, there are good reasons to be not proud. We weren't quite the most civlized people in our business with slaves, yeah we're guilty of that.
lol at that girl in your college. 'crappy food'??? Really? This makes me wonder... is there even an american cuisine? Or is that fastfood? (just joking)
It's not horrible you guys don't master a 2nd language, you don't need it that badly. We do. The fact we also learn french and german is well simply cuz we've always done that. French and Germans in our country always just speak in their own language... quite annoying. They ain't that good in English.

Americans are extremely xenophobic and that will never change. We stole the land from the natives, and now we despise the thought of illegal aliens working in our country. Patriotism is strong, but I doubt there is anywhere else in the world where people are so quick to take pride in their heritage (Irish, German, Italian, etc) even though they have never visited those countries. But yes, we actually do have a cuisine: take any dish from a European, Asian, or Latin culture. Now add 40 grams of saturated fat and two bottles of salt. Viola! You have a true American dish!
The Portuguese were far worse with the slaves than the Dutch haha. So don't be too hard on yourselves.
Well, to be fair, it's frustrating when English is challenged as the standard language of this country. I'm not a fan of legal/government documents being printed in multiple languages. However, I still hold myself accountable for studying linguistics and recognizing that the US isn't the only country in the world.
08-20-2012 12:33 PM #36
Aah well I can still always say that we founded NYC (New Amsterdam).
Lol lovely american dish :P
Oh I also don't like it when legal/government documents in my country are also written in turkish for example. I want them to be dutch only, if you live in Holland you will need to speak dutch in my opinion. (of course I don't mean if you live here temporarly or only work here)
Ooh and the inbreeding is true... hahaha :P And the portugese might have been far worse... I'm sure we got the most money out of the slavetrading. Cuz don't forget, we also introduced the stock exchange and so on... we were the first bankers (not a positive thing these days but still, our East Indian Company was the first company (i believe so, could be wrong) to give out stocks lol)
Damn Hector, you're a good guy to have a decent conversation with!!!!!
PS: Hector, if you wanna keep talking about these subjects, please continue in my userthread or yours (if you have one). This is picture rating over here haha...
