Let's learn Globalish!

There was an episode when I learnt English online.

I asked an American teacher,” Is there standard English in USA?” The answer “No” from my teacher surprised me much more than when I heard "There is no traditional American food." from my friend. No standard English? What have we been learning so far? Then I asked: ”Will you laugh at people who speaks English sounds strange?” I was really amazed and admired Americans when my teacher said: “No, opposite! If I cannot understand what they said, I will feel ashamed, especially I am a teacher.” Why I think it’s interesting is because in China or Taiwan, we have standard Chinese, if you speak with a different accent, you might be made fun of or misunderstood.

In my opinion, I don’t think Chinglish (Chinese English) will be a threaten for native speakers in 2020. Although China has the most population in the world, we have the common Mandarin Chinese instead of English to unite our country, besides people who really need to speak English in their life maybe much less than you imagine. This one maybe a bigger threaten, though.

Before you click the link, try to read this paragraph aloud, “In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.”

Some of you might have known it. The European Union Commissioners is “making” English to be EuroEnglish. It seems like English is like “fashion” --- always changing. Let’s follow it –- not Chinglish, not EuroEnglish but "GLOBALISH"!
