No, genius, this not an English forum. This is an American forum thinly disguised as a Polish forum. Go complain elsewhere.

I really don't think that Brits have a problem with Poles

NUMBERS is the problem,and the sheer speed at which they are coming in....

So clearly there is a problem. In one sentence you say Brits don't have a problem with Poles, in another you say Brits do have a problem with them.

English is a language.

H.L. Mencken would disagree....

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_American_Language

At present I tend to think of American as a mutually intelligible separate language from anything called 'English' in Europe (sort of like Czech and Slovak or Swedish and Norwegian).

For me it's a dialect of English...

Likewise. Maybe better would be to say Norwegian and Danish though? Having said that, Norwegian is strange with the two varieties that are clearly separate languages.

It certainly is a separate language though, and I really like the different influences that it has compared to British English.

in fact, Zeimo, what he said was that on the whole, Brits like Poles, but the numbers of immigrants ^from all countries^ is incredible.

and Bagel, if you are having that kind of experience at work, feck them off and get a better job.

What I noticed when I visited Poland, very strongly, is that the people we met were either very charming, friendly, welcoming etc., OR they wanted to kick our heads in. There was one v scary moment.

That is what I think UK and Poland have in common, the population divide.

How so?

For example, here is no such thing as "Austrian" either, but you hear and see differences to German.

it is really not a 'separate language'.
They have some different words that are perfectly understandable, and say some things a little differently.
Probably fewer differences than the different versions of German, region to region.

For example they would tend not to use the 'present perfect', which is in fact quite sensible, as it is a silly 'tense'.

Compare 'did you see John?' with 'have you seen John?'

or they use terms which sound a bit archaic in English, like 'faucet' for 'tap' - again perfectly understandable.

You do get some students who say ' I want to learn American/British' - the funny thing is they would be hard pushed to hear the difference.

If you want to go that far then there are different forms of English just in England!
No,American and the different forms of English in England are not different languages just dialects.
Brazilian Portuguese is more removed from Portuguese than American English is from English.
But it's still Portuguese.

Likewise. When I'm in the UK, I understand everything what people say to me (even in Scotland, but that is less obvious), but when I'm on holidays in Florida, I can grasp very little of their strange language indeed.

English is a language. American isn't.

We were not talking about the language. We were talking about a forum. About a F-O-R-U-M, genius! American vs. English forum.

here is no such thing as "Austrian" either, but you hear and see differences to German.

Im Gegenteil zu Englisch vs. Amerikanisch, ich habe kein Problem Deutsch in Deutschland oder in Österreich zu verstehen.

You are the one who is not exactly a genius,or maybe your English is just not very good(Especially if you struggle with American English).

I was talking about language on this forum.

Stop patronizing people on this forum, will you? You have been doing it for some time already. The same can be said of Roz who is certainly no fun at parties, I agree.

There you go again,showing off your poor command of English.You have done this a few times with me recently,you have not understood what I was saying,Roz had to help you out.

What I said to you was not patronising,it was just a straight fact and insult.

The difference with us Z is that we (and several others here) know how to laugh at ourselves when someone teases us or even assaults us.

The reality is that it is just black ink on a white page ! BFD !
I have enjoyed some of your witty come backs to them with much laughter when you mock them right back.
Seems like most of the people in the E.U. have total meltdowns when someone pokes fun at them.
They just don't know how to take a joke when it is on them.
I call them, "The No Nonsense people".
Hey No Nonsense People, LOOSE SOME WEIGHT & LIGHTEN UP !
If you can't laugh at yourself then learn to before your life is over.
Practice smiling because no one wants to be around a negative pull me down depressing person.
Class dismissed for today. :-)

I love ironies. From voiceofeurope.com:

German pensioner forced to move from flat to make room for Middle Eastern migrants

...and this:

Roth was actively involved in Working Group Asyl, helping migrants find accommodation when the migrant crisis broke out in 2015, with hundreds of thousands of migrants flocking to Germany.

The irony: that pensioner and Roth is the same a-hole. Serves him right.

Hey, Bagel, what is the square root of 144?

Lyzko
27 Feb 2019  #39,626

It's all a sense of misplaced priorities, doubtless informed by a knee-jerk liberalism trying once again desperately, if unsuccessfully, to make amend with Germany's Nazi past. Most "jerky" indeed:-)

Es geht einfach nur um die falschen Prioritaeten, von einem uebertriebenen Linksliberalismus veranlasst, um aufgrund der Verbrechen seinerzeit irgendwie zu versoehnen, sonst nichts.

Only slightly off topic, but many Berliners I've known over the years, one hundred or more easily, do often have a slightly Slavic cast to their faces. I'm speaking now of the so-called "Ur-Berliner" whose families have lived in or around Berlin for at least two or more centuries and whose roots are basically native to that region.

North-Rhine Westfalians too, owing to considerable Polish admixture from the arrival of Polish miners during the late 1700's, sometimes look similar, a sort of blend of the Slavic with original Germanic:-) Many names from the area between, say, Cologne and Dortmund, such as "Smolarz", "Brakensiek", "Krawitz" etc. bear this out as well.

Inhabitants of Stuttgart or Munich, Hamburg and on towards Scandinavia and Holland, all reflect different facial types.
