Re: Time for some EF demographics...

No specific choice for the Yanks? Aussies? Kiwis? And is everyone from the UK lumped into 'England?'

(Let's see how the Scots like it... Take that, Jock! )

I think a better question would be 'Are you from an English-speaking country or a non-English-speaking country?'

So, does Wales/Scotland/Norn Iron count as
Elsewhere in Europe or
Not English but speak English as main language or
Speak English as first language (assuming your first language isn't one of the celtic ones)?

British surely.

They speak Englishly there too. Just a very bad awfully sounding version.

Point taken and accepted. As in all things official though, they don't count for much. They can upgrade to the English/England answers and count themselves lucky

Oh, BTW. You've missed "I'm a Zug Policeman. I speak perfect English, but pretend not to when an American loses their shiny".

Re: Time for some EF demographics...

What is this "English" of which you speak?

I speak American, as my Italian-only Swiss fiancee can tell you (alas, it's all "Americano" to her, even Scottish! )

What if I am from England, dual Swiss citizenship and speak English as my 1st language?
I am from England, have dual English and British citizenship and speak English as first and second language and when I'm drunk also something that is recognisable as English. I also speak ust about enough Swedish to find my way around the IKEA catalogue but people here don't understand it when i speak it to them.

I thought "Americano" was a drink?

A diluted kind of coffee I believe.

I'm English, from Watford (sorry UTH ). Left England permanently in 1985 though, and feel like a complete tourist when I go back there.

I mean, it's not English is it ?
