Adam Bader, one of my readers, and an SEO Gladiator from north Africa, is coming to Italy to study Italian this summer.
I’ve been exchanging the odd email with Adam, and I complimented him on his English, but he disagrees. Indeed, this is how he disagreed:
My written English is good? Heck no, I think it sucks! But thanks anyway, I’m gung-ho about languages
Now, I don’t know about you, but I think that for someone who says he does not know English, the above response was absolutely excellent.
It’s grammatically accurate, colloquial, and, there is even a nice little idiom thrown in for good measure.
Maybe I should point out that he is studying French, Arabic, and English at university. He must be making good progress.
I would be interested to hear what his spoken English is like, but, in today’s email oriented world, being able to write well in a language or two is a very useful skill to have.
Adam appears to have a bright future ahead of him. Hope he’s on Linked-In.
