I know a little bit of basic Spanish and "y" for "and" is correct, but I can't be sure it doesn't differentiate based on local dialects.
User avatar #771 to #710 - niedzielan (02/28/2013) [-]
I was confused too, but then I Google'd.

Here's someone's answer on Yahoo.

ok Y means AND, but you cannot place the same sound after each other its a grammatical error called "cacofonia", so when your right a sentence for example, "juan y Imelda" see how its /ee/ ee/? it sounds "dirty" so you use e instead, example "Juan e Imelda" get it? you only replace the y when there is an /ee/ sound after the y same thing with o and u "Yo o otro" that's wrong, "Yo u otro" is right.
User avatar #823 to #771 - fukkendragonite (02/28/2013) [-]
Now that's sensible linguistics from the Spanish.

I'm pretty sure the fact that it said the average American speaks 0.7 of one language is a good indicator that these may be fake.

It isn't relevant to be able to speak more than English in America, it might sound stuck up but it's true. We're a very large country that has two neighbors, Mexico, that you're only actually close to if you live in like 5 of 50 states and Canada which is also English speaking. As apposed to Europe where it is very relevant to speak a few languages because your country is generally quite small and surrounded by 3 or 4 other countries that speak a different language then your own, yes I'm sure Europeans are better off for it but it's not because Americans are all stupid and fat it's mainly just geography.

I'm ashamed of some of the people that live in America and represent it, but I'm not ashamed to live here. To be honest I'm pretty thankful that I can live in a country that I have never had to fear hunger, civil unrest, etc. I would much rather live here than anywhere else actually.

Aren't there a french and a english speaking part in Canada?

Nevertheless that's a pretty good point.

But I still think it enriches you, to learn a different language as you deal with the culture of the country/countries where it is spoken. I for myself learn Russian as an foreign language besides English (My mothertongue is Geman and I also can speak a bit French) as it gives you a basic for most eastern European countries and I'm really interested in the Russian culture.

America's education system is not the best no. However I truly believe if your country or any other European country were in the same location they would most likely only know their own language.

"you" and "your" are terms that can be used as a generalization. Instead of saying, "One's country is their pride" you could just say "You country is your pride."

It wouldn't matter, you're a biased turd.

China has a 3rd of the world's population, and none of these top 20 universities are in there. Yet everyone assumes they're super intelligent?

You're probably just going off of what mommy or daddy told you to believe, without checking anything for yourself.

Invaded by the spaniards? We only loved you and Austria to no end!

Everyone thinks we're the bad guys for everything yet we are probably one of the countries that has passed through most **** in europe. Everyone just ****** up our **** when they found the best moment to do it, or they just teamed up and ****** us up, when we weren't ******* up by ourselves.

GODDAMMIT WE DIDN'T EVEN WANT THEM ******* BOURBONS.

And Franco just made every patriotic demonstration a synonym of fascism.

Don't forget that we were also invaded by: greek, romans, muslims, germans (almost every kind of german ancient tribe), carthaginians, french, and now muslims again. We also have plenty of latin americans here.

User avatar #676 to #631 - rieskimo (02/28/2013) [-]
I get what you're saying but it isn't really as applicable. As you may, or may not, know the country we know today as The United States of America was started by colonies established by English countrymen. That is why America is constantly portrayed as a "son" of England, as the seed of the country was planted by England. It wouldn't work with America in the place of England and China in the place of America because China was already very much a country of its own. Started internally by striking territorial borders and uniting as one country. Economically speaking it could be loosely true as China's modern wealth has been accrued by the export of manufactured goods and labor to America and the purchasing of credit debt from America, but the visual metaphor would be mostly lost and confusing.


tl;dr you're wrong, mostly.

User avatar #744 to #738 - mutzaki ONLINE (02/28/2013) [-]
It's a lot more prominent in the bigger cities, but I also think it's because of how relatively recent our immigration has been. In the UK, it's been mixed for a very long time, hasn't it, due to your history?

Yeah but these statistics are 			********		 and I am not even an Americafag or even from an English speaking country (East-Europe baby).   
   
Firstly, and most importantly, most countries like the Netherlands and Sweden speak English as their second language. So that means you already have 2 languages down.   
   
Second of all, Dutch and German language (and don't crucify me here, I am just talking about the language) is fairly similar, so it is easy for the Dutch to learn German and vice versa (at least much easier compared to a total outsider). Furthermore, the Dutch have languages  within their state like Frisian, so the statistics go even more down the drain.    
   
This also goes for the Scandinavian languages. They are not as similar as Dutch and German but already have a common ground on which they can easily built their way to learning the other Scandinavian languages.   
   
I don't even know why I am talking about this, it just generally annoyed me that this statistic is supposed to show off intelligence of some countries but is an actual BS. Following this statistic, than most of my countrymen and me speak Bosnian, Montenegrian, Serbian, Croatian, kinda Bulgarian and Slovenian etc. 5.5 up in this bitch.
