Apr-07-05  Stevens: <appaz> lol, no i'm not american. I didn't mean that everyone speaks english as a main language, but they are far more proficient than 90% of english people are at speaking french/german/russian. I haven't met anyone from europe who couldn't at least get by in english.
Apr-07-05  Appaz: <Stevens> I got by very well in Poland with just English, although problems could sometimes arise. Many (most?) young people speak English, but not that many older people.

I remember traveling back from Poland. On the ferry from Poland to Sweden, I shared a cabin with two Poles on their way to Norway. I speak English, and understand a tiny bit of German; they spoke German, and understood a tiny bit of English. We had a h... of a time, talking, gesturing and drinking into the early morning. It impressed me how well we communicated, in spite of our language problems.

The bus trip through Sweden was another story. I've never had such a hangover in my life. But of course, you have to pay for having such a good time :)

Apr-07-05  WillC21: <Appaz> Why do you travel so much?
Apr-07-05  Appaz: <WillC21> I don't, really! :)

But I love traveling, and most of all I like to travel alone. That gives a lot of freedom to make up the route as you go, and it's much easier to meet interesting people that way.

Apr-15-05  pazzed paun: <Larsker> English is the language of business. If you live in the U.S. your chances of using another language are limited. Europeans in an 2 hour trip can go to a country that speak 3 other languages-so many people in the U.S> only speak one language.

  Eric Schiller: <pazzed> I don't know where you live, but out here in the SF Bay area there are opportunities to speak many languages, daily. Speak Russian to chessplayers, Spanish all over the place (soem Portuguese out where I live), various Chinese languages, Japanese and Tagalog. We even have signs in many of the languages. There are also neighborhoods where Thai, Khmer, Vietnames or Korean are common. Even out on the coast, a local cafe is run by Cambodians and I've spoken Khmer there, just for practice. I've lived in New York and Chicago, where opportunities were just as great.

It isn't a matter of opportunity, just of most Americans not being interested in learning other languages. I doubt there are any American cities without Chinese and Mexican restaurants!

As a chessplayer, I have always found it useful and fun to learn a little of the local language wherever I've played. It has proven very useful!

Apr-16-05  pazzed paun: <Eric Schiller> although your point is well taken you are talking about language as recreational pastime and not as a necessity. There are places s in this country where an immigrant or even one born here can live, go to school ,work marry, raise kids, and die without ever speaking a word of English-so it even more likely that someone not in contact with an ethnic enclave would only speak English.

When I was living in Seattle there was a resturant that advertised it served American Mexican Greek Japanse food! (not on the same plate!) some combination of the owners background and travels.

Early one Saturday morning I went to Oakland's Chinatown and wandered around I was the only non-asian person for blocks-it was interesting.
