Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Brits as a rule just speak English, FOM is not useful to the majority. Not wishing to blame this on a foreign language teacher, Why is this?
Maybe that used to be the case, but almost 40% of Brits now speak a second language and this is on the increase. Perhaps Brexit will put a dampener on this, maybe not - Polish is the most commonly spoken 2nd language, however the next 5 are Punjabi, Urdu, Bengali, Gujurati and Arabic which won't be affected by Brexit, of course.
