You know? Yet you still ignore – go figure
Nope many French are not dying to understand, I spend a great deal of time in France and I can assure you that most French people do not give a care for the English language other than the “weekend”. Figure that one out for yourself
The only places/occupations in France where English is a benefit is holiday resort bars, hotels, international pilots and some very few government officials. That is not because the French are dying to understand English it is because of the ignorance of the English not bothering to learn at least a little of the language of the country where spend there vacation. In the case of the 95%+ of government officials who don’t speak English they make a point of and are proud to insist on French.
Yes you are really stupid, good observation. Why do you deliberately sew obfuscation? I am not claiming English is German or France, I am saying that English is mostly compiled from other languages and if it can be said that it belongs to anyone (as you claim) then it belongs to English speakers, not the country.
There are around 90 times more people who are not English who speak the English language as a first or flaunt language than there are English people. It can be argued using that criteria and your assertion that it belongs then it belongs to the USA, after all there are far more English speakers in the US than there are in England.
Charles doesn't even speak French, apparently, and his grasp on English is iffy, too.
As an aside, English is my second language.
