How do u feel abt English?
Guyz I know most of us, bloggers always use English coz every time we comment or replying to the given articles by TVSA Admin or to our articles that we’ve created by ourselves we use English so we can all understand.
Yesterday I was watching Zabalaza on SABC1 they were talking about English dat how good it is en how bad it is.
As we all know that in life there’s always good side and the bad side of thing of which even English u can also find that.
Guys we all know that English is the language which the key for everything co z each and evrything of today is enlgish imean like our current life is english especially u won’t get a good job if u don’t know how to speak it so English is like I compulsory to learn it. And we find that other people really can’t speak it because of different reason and there is no one who is perfect in English …or fine u may think u perfect but lately u find that there’s someone who beating of how to speak because of their bombastic words like one of our bloggers who released an article which have strong words (well that was good of him coz we learnt some of the word we never meet before) that I hardly to understand sometimes u have to use a dictionary.
I know sometimes we laughed at each other because of poor English we have well we don’t have same minds which can pick quickly like yours maybe and we didn’t go to same school like some of us went to multi schools and others went to government schools like me I went to public school coz that’s what was affordable to my parent and we thina black people we turn to criticise other people’s poor English just because we can’t correct them kanti what’s wrong with people.
And the the other thing is sometimes we turnly to forget where we coming from because of this English yes it is helpful and a lots but if we going to forget our traditionall thingz because I think dat’s is wrong………….and the bad thing is we can’t even count the number in Zulu or other Afican languages (but I can) and we don’t even know month’s word in Zulu en other African language (but I can) kanti what is the point of leading this country if we gonna use other people’s language.
Mina I know that I’m not good in English but I’m willing to learn it and be a prefect one one day but I also don’t respect my language that’s why I mostly use it, en into engixakayo is why people the need to criticize somebody else's english when,
- What was written was perfectly easy to understand
- The writter's first language clearly is not English.
-The person who criticizes is often monolingual and couldn't even make a
sentence in another language, let alone worry about the mistakes!
- Often makes many spelling and gramatical themselves,
- And if you read their back answers, their answers are often stupid and
pointless, and never answer the question. But ke they say an empty mind is the devil's f actory (quoted to Asker). Sometimes, some of us are true Grammar Types, who just can't help but correct. Others broadly fall into the empty-mind-looking-for-reason-of-being. They will just criticise any and everything.
Lastly, many of us are severely underexposed to other people and cultures. We just never know that there is the possibility of another kind of person who does not lead their life like us We know it theoretically, but not experientially. It's one thing to know, it's another to face diversity and being able to adjust oneself.
Guyz there’s a lopt I can tell about this english language but let me not finish it coz I stl wanna hear form you my good people
- Guyz I would like each of us tell us how he/she feels about this language?
- How do you feel about someone who doesn't speak English?
- How do feel about employer requiring you to speak English when you find it to speak but u can able to to do the job so just because you can’t speak English so you won’t get the job …How do feel about that guyz?
Please forgive me with my poor english and wrong spelling
