Be more specific, 5 countries in Europe do speak English.
With accents, they are cute.
Even English accents? SWEET I'M CUTE.
To some Americans, especially teenage girls, pretty much any accent that doesn't originate where they live is cute.
Yeah high five!
One of them being England where the language came from.
Americans don't have bad grammar and don't speak the language wrong, they just have their own branch-off of English. Spain and Mexico are the same way. Over all, they share the same language, but there are a vast amount of differences. The Americans who do actually just speak english poorly do so mostly due to the rise of the "gangster" movement, where peple choose to talk that way to appear tough.
... OP, you do know English, as a lanuage, actually comes from Europe, right? :P
I think Japanese people speaking English is cuter
Really heavy French and German accents are so cute
Americans speak terrible english
Attempt? Psht. Foreigners speak English better than Americans, true story.
What, isn't it true? It's been said on every website ever, but when I say it it's wrong?
It's just true, the American casual dialect is far from correct usually, that's all.
This post implies Europeans are bad at English, but that's not a generalisation?
It's wrong on "every website ever" too, not just you. So the American casual dialect isn't perfect, but it definitely isn't true that foreigners speak better. I know people who have lived in the states for years who have terrible English. Foreigners who speak it better do so because they grew up speaking it.
I also would blame it on the public school system here, but what do I know?
Meanwhile, by using the word attempt, the OP is specifying Europeans who are not fluent. They are not generalizing.
Wait, no, that's not what I mean at all. It's just that people who speak a language that they learnt manually as a second language have better grammar usually because as a native speaker one does not learn the same things. For example, I learnt English, and so I know that one must always say "If he were an elephant..." etc, and not "If he was an elephant..." and I know why. The normal native speaker doesn't have a clue, usually. Learning it as a native language is just completely different, so in the end it causes the speaker to lack some knowledge, since it was just "picked up" and not properly taught. I'm foreign, but I speak better English than most my American peers. Most of my foreign friends (who are fluent) speak it great, too. It's the system. It's nothing personal, it happens in all countries.
I know what this post meant, so it's worded wrong. It's more like "people with European accents" rather than just all Europeans ever. I mean, I'm European, and I can speak in such a way that no American could tell. It's generalising, too, like I did.
I have to agree with you about the grammar. I know an Austrian foreign exchange student who speaks English better and more grammatically correct that most American students.
