Simple: "Ditt spr=E5k her". English is taught in school, and although som=
e
people seemingly are capable of unlearning everything they ever learnt,
as well as the capability for learning anything new, two hours after the
last exam in junior high is over, the degree of fluency in English is
quite good over here.

Can we stop this silly "that-language-isn't-worthy" already? Sure, we
should cut down on the number of euroclone auxlangs, and the shirt=20
shouldn't include every natlang ever mentioned in the ethnologue but be
reasonable eh?
