While I do prefer people to speak English properly, I live in Manchester.

LOL. I'm surprised that you guys can understand each other sometimes.

Some people are difficult to understand, but some accents.... some accents just make me laugh. I can't help it, they just sound odd.

Like people from Birmingham. They (no offence to them) generally sound like they're lost in thought.

My accent is not really a proper Manchester one. it's more of a general British. xD It's hard to explain. But I definitely don't speak much slang. Innit.

That's not Australian. It's just proper English.

Also, I think less and fewer should be added to this list as people rarely use them properly.

You could of been a lot nicer then to post this mean picture. Some people just have a hard time with grammar there trying I promise but your discouraging them from learning by having such a negative affect. Its hard to learn English and all of it's strange rules.

I'll admit that when people ask me what languages I speak I usually say none. At least, none of them well. :D

From my observation, "could of" "would of" "should of" are typically used by Brits, while "its" and "your" are used by Americans.


Your observations are wrong.
A casual stroll through any Internet forum dictates otherwise.

At least you got that one right. I want to strangle Americans when they say "I could care less".
