Idiocracy 2006 DVDRip English Spanish French Multi Sub 28
i couldnt write any of my notes in esperanto, without a dictionary. i gave up on that, but i can write my notes in spanish. but i still cannt speak or write in spanish, but i can read a lot of spanish books and watch american tv programs like the new york emmy award winning oprah winfrey. i like it, even for snoring. so i could understand virtually everything in spanish and it allows me to understand what people are saying in other languages, and they can understand me in other languages. i have a very good friend who spent a month in peru and he doesnt speak spanish at all. and we can understand each other perfectly well, its amazing. he moved to the big city of lima, where in the street he used to sleep there was a different language spoken. and we can understand each other perfectly well with not a single word spoken. i need a dictionary for that too, and that is why i am like you. i am old, i started with books and i still am with books. i tried some other means, like the world wide web and it works for what its good for (to learn a language) but for me it is a bit too much. i am happy with books, and books make me happy. to conclude, we live in a highly discriminatory world, where, for the majority of reasons it seems that the most important international organisation should use english.
by the way, if you show your numbers to some canadian, maybe they will share them with us too (they speak many languages and were colonized by a people from usa and canada). i canot find source but i think 2000 is number 1. i dont know when and how the canadins changed their native language. i believe they all did.
naomi, i have in fact read your english. i like the way you write. french and german are both beautiful languages, but i know that, especially in france, english is the language of the general populace. not only because it is easier to read and write than german or french, but also because many people here think that they have to do a better job of speaking english. if someone were to introduce himself to someone, and he would speak in german, the reaction might be, “oh, he is a german.” but, when a person speaks english, the answer is, “oh, he is an american.” because english is a big melting pot.
i actually did some research on this a couple weeks ago. from the bls, government labor sources, the pew research center and some newspaper articles, i found that during 1991 the following languages were considered major languages: chinese, spanish, english, french, german and russian. in 2004, those same languages were considered major languages: chinese, spanish, english, french, german and russian. it is clear that the predominant languages are still english and spanish. the others all dipped during that period. also, in ’91 62.1% of the population spoke english and in ’04, 64.4% spoke english. of the other languages, in ’91, 18% spoke russian, 16.1% spoke german, 3.2% spoke spanish and 1.3% spoke french. in 2004, 21.1% spoke russian, 18.6% spoke spanish, 3% spoke german, 2.6% spoke french and 1.4% spoke polish. when comparing percentage to population, english is still at a high 64.4% and spanish is at a high 66.1%. so, while the other languages may be dropping, that does not mean the population speaking them is dropping. it simply means that the other languages are becoming more widely spoken, but that other languages are still preferred over the english and spanish spoken by majority of the population. there is no doubt that english is still the lingua franca of the world, and i fully expect that will continue into the future. (not to mention that the other countries are in awe and are finally learning this language to communicate with the english).
