Why do foreigners make their languages so hard?

03 April 2010 0

On April 1st, the National Centre for Languages announced “high level negotiations with foreign governments” to get them to simplify their languages for Brits.

The French are looking at merging ‘le’ and ‘la’, and a representative of the Goethe Institut reveals details of “an ambitious five-year plan to remove case endings from German nouns”.

Have to admit, I went through a good few seconds of outrage before noticing the date on this one.
