How do you know English?

I was taught English when I was Six however, I spoke broken english in earlier stages due to my family speaking.

In Norway, at Slettebakken skole, a teacher called Babara came every week with some bitch girl in class 2A ¬.¬ Anyway, she was really nice and Canadian - haha

Because my parents wanted me to speak proper english

I always speak it now cause I have forgotten Norwegian LOL

As long as I dont over produce salivia or forget what I'm saying, I'm awesome

As above

I do think I am better than many native speakers of English

I can live in England without grunting since I don't know anyother language anymore, keke

I spelt cat- cat and that bitch who learnt English with me spelt cat - kat (the Norwegian way) and I was younger and she got jealous - haha you bum. it's a funny story to me

- How do you know English?
I have been exposed to it ever since my pre-school years

- Where or who did you learn English from?
Teachers, my parents and the media I have been exposed to.

- Why do you know English?
It is the universal language and thus an important factor if you want to interact with people on a global scale.

- How often do you speak English? Do you speak it outside?
I speak English on a daily basis whenever I'm in school. I seldom use it outside considering that most of the people around me speak in Filipino.

- How good do you think you are at speaking English? Are you coherent or choppy?
I am coherent enough. Not exactly verbose, but a person should be able to understand it.

- How badly do you butcher the words?
Not that bad, only when I SMS / text

- Do you think that you are better in English than the ones (Americans) who had it as their first language?
You have to take the IELTS to be able to compare.

- How helpful has the English language been to you?
Academically helpful & it aids me in interacting with professionals and individuals on the internet or outside of it.



Same goes for me except im Canadian.

-How do you know English?
This question is too similar to the others...

- Where or who did you learn English from?
Ontario - Canada since in the other country ( Haha Quebec) Every one around me spoke french, and even though there's lots of people who spoke english, I didn't bother learning.

- Why do you know English?
In 2004 when I was 10 my parents decided to move to Ontario, since I was pretty jealous of my relatives speaking fluent english and always wanted to know what beyonce was saying in ''Baby boy'' I decided to hang out with my neighbors, watch english TV... It was hard at the beginning...

- How often do you speak English? Do you speak it outside?
The only times I don't speak english are at home, I go to a french school here but everyone speaks english when classes are done and erm ==== during class...

- How good do you think you are at speaking English? Are you coherent or choppy?
I've only spoken english for 4 years, yet I speak the language fluently.


- How badly do you butcher the words?
When I am nervous I butcher my words a lot... but that goes for any language I speak

- Do you think that you are better in English than the ones (Americans) who had it as their first language?
Same level I'll say. Well I speak like a Canadian (Tip #1 : Americans say ''huh'' Canadians --- well english-Canadians say ''eh''. Example #1 : American : I know huh? Canadian : I know eh?

- How helpful has the English language been to you?
Since I live in a english speaking society I'll say that it helped me a lot, plus it's an universal language.

Questions:
- How do you know English?

From school, books and internet
- Where or who did you learn English from?
Read last question
- Why do you know English?
Because it's obligatory at school and I love the English language
- How often do you speak English? Do you speak it outside?
Rarely as I live in Norway, the few times I speak English is when I meet foreigners. I use it outside when the situations demands it and when fooling around with my friends
- How good do you think you are at speaking English? Are you coherent or choppy?
Quite well, with the exception of a few mispronunciations.
- How badly do you butcher the words?
I hardly butcher it at any time, I try to write perfect English all the time. In games, on msn and everywhere else.
- Do you think that you are better in English than the ones (Americans) who had it as their first language?
Saying I am would be a horrible generalization. Though I have no doubt that I speak better than certain individuals.
- How helpful has the English language been to you?
Quite helpful, as I need to use English almost constantly at the internet due to the amount of Norwegians.
- Insert something here pertaining to this subject, like funny stories, random facts, etc.
Due to the Viking invasion there are plenty of Scandinavian (Swedish, Danish & Norwegian) words in the English language
