I think that that persons actually a chavette

you may know Vicky Pollard:




a prat is an idiot/twatt

a pillock is also that, I think that it originates in a word for some certain section of a body, but I'm not sure, I'll ave a butchers but dat m8. I have checked, and it originally meant *****

a pikey comes from a derogatory term for a gypsy, but now its kind of a super-chav, not a gypsy. It depends on the context.

Back home after a big roadtrip (at least for me ).
5 days, 5 countries, 2200 km

I will make a travel summary on the Romanian Travelogue sub-forum soon.

Cheers

I think that the differences between Quebecois French and French French are a bit like Portuguese Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese, the French can't understand Quebeckers and Brazilians can't understand the Portuguese, but vice-versa isn't the case.


For me it is enough to heard a football player even Brazilian or Portuguese when starts playing in a Spanish team. Even if it is the first time they are at Spain and use only Portuguese for speaking, Portuguese players will be understood if speaking slowly, maybe they will need help... and Brazilian players will need a translator.

Six months later, the Portuguese player will speak better or worse Spanish, but enough to talk it for Press and Brazilian will start to speak it without a translator.



PS. I think that it was Vitor Baia, more than 10 years ago, the Portuguese player who spoke better Spanish. I think I never found a mistake when speaking in Spanish, neither those words very similar in both languages, or verbs or... Hearing him you had to pay attention to guess he had a different accent.

PS-2. But... David Beckham played several years at Spain and he learned only a couple of words. He needed always a translator. His wife Victoria learned NOTHING about the language spoken where she lived for those years.

That's quite normal for English people. In Mayrhofen live a lot of English expats, some have been living there for decades without having bothered to learn German.

I consider that rude. If you want to settle somewhere for a longer period, at least try to learn some of the local language.

I agree. I speak fluent German, and I'm now starting on the local dialect.

I know, thats why I feel I can't visit lots of places, because I am too embarrassed to be English

Alserod, you must understand Portuguese better than most Spanish people. Its true though that Spanish people will understand slow Portuguese

Why some street signs appear blurred on Google Street View (but often you can read them by changing zoom)? It's a sort of software bug?

Probably software regards them as faces and faces have to be blurred. The same is for some direction signs as probably software regards them as licence plates.

Especially since German should not be that hard for an English-speaker...

License plates have to be blurred - many signs are confused for them, esp. the yellow and white ones...

Even Sweden. The word 'stop' in Swedish translates to 'beer mug'.

you should see our gastarbeiters - in Germany they speak their native languages (Croatian or wherever they are from), and when they come here they speak German or at least something that should be German they think they are cool if they speak it here.

In Hungary, too, STOP is used.
In Israel, instead of spelling it by Hebew, English and Arabic alphabet each, a special sign is used:
