European English

The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, the British government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what I’ll be known as Euro English ( Euro for short ).

In the first year, “s” will be used instead of the soft “c”. Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard “c” will be replaced with “k”. Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced by “f”. This will make words like “fotograf” 20 persent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komolikated changes are possible, Governments will enkorage the removal if double letters, which have always ben deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent “e”s in the language is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” by “z” and “w” by “v”. During ze fifz year, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou”, and similar changes vid of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikuktis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

Ze drem vil finali kum tru!

Well giving my particular situation: I stayed in one major ( has something to do with OA——Office Automation ) for two years, and then transfered to another major ( has some thing to do with information management ) for the rest two years so I could get a bachelor degree. Did you ever hear hear your parents told you “Diploma is important”? But the fact is: Even though my education level is “4 year College or University”, I actually didn’t have an integrity major course finished in place.

“Everything is gone except English.” —— that was what I thought at the time. So I continued working on improve my English, not for getting a diploma paper or pass some English exams, but to learn English with my own interesting. English to me, is very funny, comfortable and precious. I remember one famous writer once said, each language of mankind is a particular ways to see the world; if you really learned a second language, it will feel like a new horizon wide open in front of your eyes, and you will have a whole new way to see the world.
