So i’ve noticed that most of the people on these forums are european, and I just wanted to know how many are native english speakers, and how many speak another language as their primary. I’m from america and I have just noticed a little bit of broken english on these forums… not as bad as some places i’ve seen… but just little quirks. funny things really, just stuff that i know we would have phrased differently in america
Please bear with us and our foul language As for me, I’m a proud Swenglish writer
There was a thread about this actually:
the nationality thread
French Canadian, assimilated Anglophone.
well, ummm. my native language is actually portuguese, i grew in brazil till i was 12.
then i moved with my parents to germany, and i live here since 87.
so i guess my “main” language is german, but i also speak broken spanish and a, what i think, (you decide ) somehow good english.
my best english teacher was my dvd player and the internet though, so…
i am native english speaking but my thoughts translate better with telepathy than they do with the english language.
and MAN do i wish i could telepath with the devs!
I’m Estonian… But i can also speak russian and english…
native? native!? I am not a native!
what the &($&"!?!
you’re a (&/"&$, %(/)&, “)/(”$%, %/(= ")=!!
Southern italian here
I am one of those crazy germans. But as I lived in UK for one year, my spoken english is quite good. My written english is bad…
didn’t really expect americans to be present here.
actually i didn’t really expect they’d be able to handle a tracker at all (j/k)
omg no you didn’t!
you’re the one speaking my language… obviously my people are doing a better job of taking over the world than yours!
And thank god for that, the german grammar is hard!
Fluid norwegian from Norway here. Yep. Funny how most new people I meet figure I speak more fluidly in english than norwegian, as my dialect can be a bitch for some.
Oh, and I understand a little french!
yeah, but then again, we are smarter cause we can speak not only our native language but also other languages
except for italians
we all speak the language of music… WHY CAN’T EVERYBODY JUST GET ALONG?
Fluent Australian speaker here. Can’t understand a word of English
I`m more into German - I suppose.

No, I don’t agree, vvoois!
Native language: Persian
Since 16 years: German
And mentioning Englisch shouldn’t be that interesting since we’re talking/writing in English here all the time
Third: German - not really practiced in a couple of years so I can basicly say “hello” and order beer, which to me is the most important phrases in any language
