as i said before - and I repeat - you are crap at multitasking (reading and understanding what you read)

Don't you understand what I'm really saying or you just don't want to...Stick your multitasking in your brown e.e

I do not bother. I'm just giving you the facts.

What facts? It's still generalizing, in 50 years there will still be many lazy and bad people in Poland introducing us to their bad ideas. That's why the ring main is a shabby argument to point out, beside you didn't even contrargument laddy, you just attacked him without countering what he said. That's why I'm telling you again you should revise what you want to post before you post. And start trying to come up with some sensible arguments.

By the way, I consider that many of you here is Polish including me.

What does considering people being polish has to do with you taking me for somebody from UK? Nothing. It still means you are bad in absorbing information.

don't get me started on the IT people :) It's my pet hate

Oh come on.. was it that bad? You've just met the wrong people ;)

It seems to be a waste of time on this forum to type anything even you are talking about green aliens.

i agree

because years and years ago I was able to understand Polish English (grammar wise). I am unable now, and it's difficult to understand what's your point.

One solutions - start making your poiint to me IN POLISH
Advanced level?...I must be native then

Oh come on.. was it that bad? You've just met the wrong people ;)

you know how it works..you dread this phonecall from me so you pass it to the person who can deal with me ;)
no, it wasn't so bad. Enough to say I avoid IT managers and 1st helpdesk. Something in the middle is the most competent :)

It is some waste of time to talk with people like you because they just don't wanna listen...it's not my Polish English ....it's just you...I know many natives here and they understand my English well enough...What's your level? Stubborn English?

MY POINT IS LEAVE POLISH IMMIGRANTS IN PEACE...GO FIGHT WITH SOMEONE ELSE YOU HATE OR YOU DON'T LIKE AND DON'T BLAME ONLY POLISH FOR ANYTHING YOU'VE DONE...UNDERSTOOD NOW?

I dont think you are native 'One solutions'

Well, yelling and insulting is one way and providing proper contrarguments is another. If you prefer the first solution it's your choice.

see...the problem is I used to understand people talikng Polish-translated-straight0into-English
i think you wanted to say something like:

it's a waste of time to talk to people like you. You dont want to listen. [...] I know many natives understanding MY English. Whta's your level? [...]?

My level- I dare to say - is knowing the language.

it's a waste of time to talk to people like you. You dont want to listen. [...] I know many natives understanding MY English. Whta's your level? [...]?

It's the same in different tense... What's the point to play word game? both versions are correct and if you saying that one is incorrect you know b... s... about English. Come here talk to people and you will see something more than your computer program you use to learn that language.

I actually think my version is more correct than yours.

By the way - check what wanna means and belive me it's correct and you can use it in both ways - want to or wanna

I don't wanna say 'I know many natives understanding MY English'
I wanted to say ' I know many natives here and they understand my English well enough' and it's nothing wrong with it.

To tak jakby powiedziec : Twoja wersja Znam wielu miejscowych ktorzy rozumijea moj Angielski/

Moja wersja . Znam wielu miejscowych tutaj ktorzy rozumieja moj Angielski wystarczajaco dobrze. Nie widze zadnego problemu by powiedziec to tak czy inaczej

Go to the school to learn English and after we can talk. When you learn some language not everything is just the translation of its meaning.

It is a waste of time to talk with people like you because they just don't wanna listen..[...].I know many natives here and they understand my English well enough...What's your level? Stubborn English?

Isn't it ripping people for next 20 pounds and isn't it ignorance to that what your bodies issued to me even if it's issued outside your island? Isn't it a crazy sound?

Yawn...There are plenty out there who have a piece of paper who cant communicate on a basic level.

There are those out there who had private lessons in Poland and speak, read and write English well.

I have NO certificates in English - Cambridge or otherwise; I haven't attended ANY English language school in the UK nor Poland

I arrest my case.

I could mention the the point that my friend took the necessary steps to learn to speak, read and write English before he came to England, his friend has been here for 5 years, has just finished an English "course" and could hardly read the certificate he was given!

Go to the school to learn English and after we can talk

I hate to tell you this Slawek, but I thought that Ms N-N was a native speaker and not Polish...So I'd personally say her English is near to perfect and "flows" better than yours.

Test before work? Rubbish.

Im not completely sure about the building trade but Im almost sure they dont really "interview" electricians, they take them at their word (stupid I know!)...Only through their work they can tell if they're good or not. As to going for a bargain, this is true, but as we ways "all that glitters isnt necessarily gold" ...As for reputation, how is a person to know what a person reputation is if they not a "local" tradesman?

yes, I know what 'wa/o/nna/gonna' means...I don't speak American English. Sorry

Im not quite sure Id say its "American" English, its just very common and not particularly good English, lazy in fact.

:D

Grey or Gray - both are correct...

You with perfect language, you don't know, how come?

Said the guy with the "Cambridge" certificate!

Grey is the correct spelling if you are in England. We dont spell it gray, unless its someones surname.

GCSE graduate opinion?

Im a native speaker, GCSE was a mere formality.

Your might want to check out your link, it referred to spellings in the US not England.
Slawek076 - | 81

Grey is the correct spelling if you are in England

That's what I used, your perfect one used gray, but anyway both are correct.

GCSE graduate opinion?

and you have a better judgement because of yours 'advanced' level in whatever it is?
I don't need anyone to assess your language skills

as for 'gray'...you'd know it's ENGLISH

and - if you knew some people with this kind of surname. you'd notice how sensitive they are about 'e' v 'a'

Its probably been her only mistake, I neither have the time nor the inclination to go through your posts. They are both correct, one is correct in England the other in America, if I submitted a report with the word "grey" written "gray" in the UK it wouldn't be acceptable. So for arguments sake, I am right and you are wrong in this matter.
Slawek076 - | 81  
11 Nov 2009 /  #49
As you said as both are correct. That's agreed. Grey and Gray are still English and one used in England and other in the USA. By the way, your friend gave me some interesting focus on that word. Without it, I wouldn't even know that Gray exists. I've always been told it's "grey".

I'm not saying, I know more about English than you "native". I'm saying, I know enough to communicate well and my Cambridge Advance is not whatever but yes, it will still be not as much as ''native'' being. As I said as I'm still working on my language. So, please understand me in this point but don't tell me you don't understand it because you understand it well enough. You would even say all new immigrants should pass English at proficiency level to be able to get cleaners job. What a fun!

It's ignorance. Nothing much to say! I wish, you will be ignored one day as you act to ignore me now. If you don't understand use google translator!

I would prefer to live in the USA if only I could legally live there. Believe me.

SÅ‚awek, you do a course. As an experienced teacher, I disagree. There are many students with FCE and CAE that really aren't up to scratch. Those certificates don't cut the mustard a lot of the time.

It will give you some confidence with the language but it's just the start of your learning curve. It's like the CELTA, it's a baseline course and there are many ways to build on it. You come out of it with a basic awareness of methodological issues but, truth be told, you barely scrape the surface.

It depends what you need. Your English is more than good enough for communicating. Your article use is a little askew but, then again, I can say the same about Polish teachers of English.

...As for reputation, how is a person to know what a person reputation is if they not a "local" tradesman?

I would probably stick to some local craftsman over an unknown bloke from abroad, beside around here everyone knows somebody who's a builder, plumber or an electrician, on a friend of a friend basis. Although that isn't the best situation when they break something there's this problem with whose gonna pay for the damage, despie that it's always better to know the person who tinkers with your stuff.

As for people like builders, they usually sign a contract which assumes that they'll pay for any inconveniences. Sending electricians unexperienced with certain local circuit standards is a failure on the "command" level. Somebody somewhere made a mistake by sending these out.

Slawek076

I completely wouldn't mind you, and what your blabbering about but come on, you dare to finger somebody's mistakes out when your statements make an unintelligebale mess and you go even further and boast about how great you are...

Polish education is seen as higher and I can testify, first hand, that young Poles are generally very bright and sharp. My question is, what happens to them? I think they get squeezed by harsh reality and their conditions are often not as good as in the UK.

They seem to go off the boil.
Slawek076 - | 81

AS I SAID BEFORE, I'M STILL WORKING ON MY ENGLISH. QUESTION IS: WHY TO GET GCSE IN ENGLISH (LOWER THAN CAE) IF YOU'VE GOT CAE? WHY DO ENGLISH EMPLOYERS ACCEPT ONLY GCSE?
Seanus 15 | 19,706  
11 Nov 2009 /  #59
I don't think it's as clear cut as you think. English O grades and A grades are seen as higher than their Scottish counterparts, S Grades and Higher (Revised) Grades. Simply put, FCE and CAE are general proficiency courses done by foreigners but GCSE's are done by natives. Sorry, I've been a mentor of CAE and FCE groups and taught them for 4 years. I know what I'm talking about, Scottish Highers are much harder thematically than them. FCE and CAE would have been a walk in the park for me at 16 but Highers can really put you to the sword.

I have to say, even weaker students in Scotland have better written English than some of the writing assignments I read. Speaking? No comparison.

At least someone who knows the difference. Thank's for explanation. Now, it's more clear for me. I think, that's good idea to get GCSE in English either.
