English in your nation

Postby Kalaspia-Shimarata » Wed Mar 21, 2012 5:38 am

Does your nation adopt English since it is the international language of the world? If your nation already adopts English, but by an un-assosiated conisidence, then imagine English was another widespread language such as French, that you don't adopt. In Kalaspia-Shimarata, we have had English since WWII which eventually evolved to Kalashi English, but if we didn't speak English, we would embrase English, but have laws like Russian laws where company signs must be written in Kalaspian, Shimaratan and Greek larger and more prominate than the English ones, but since there is Kalashi English, foreign companies and local companies that are only written in English are lucky. What about your nation?
Kalaspia-Shimarata's flag represents the Union between K&S. The dark blue represents the sea and the light blue represents the sky. In Kalashi language considers light blue and dark blue to be different colours. England colonised, and unified K&S, between 1774 and 1953, and English, light blue and dark blue are considered to be the same colour. Therefore, the contrast between dark blue and light blue represents the union, but the differences between K&S where as blue being two but simultaneously one colour represents K&S being two, but simultaniously one entity. The opposite to the symmetry represents the unity and indipendance of K&S, whilst also representing the Kalashi culture of opposite symmetry.KS is 75% Christian, hence the cross.

Most people in Finchera either speak primarily English or Portugese. People started speaking english when thousands immigrated from the former nation of Phanafia. Phanafia has been speaking english since the mass British, American, and Russian immigration in the 1930's.

English is understood especially by those involved in international commerce,and is one of the languages which may be studied in schools. Our primary and official language is Russian, however.

One can take English as a language class in High school, however it's not used much outside academics and isn't very popular with students as Swedish and Icelandic are foreign tongues spoken far more in the Empire. Little to no people in Sathera speak English as a first language.

Postby Sidhae » Wed Mar 21, 2012 6:09 am

Many Sidhae speak several Terran languages, English being one of the most common along with Mandarin. Having good command of at least one Terran language is seen as a sign of learned man. Most soldiers understand English fairly well, because it is widely spoken by Imperium's human enemies.

Sidhae learn and speak English as it was in mid-21st century Britain. Now in 27th century, it sounds somewhat archaic to the modern human English-speaker, akin to how Shakespearean English would sound to a 21st century English-speaker. A positive side effect, this does help with promoting the aristocratic image of Sidhae.
Proud National Socialist. Blaming everything on the liberals since 2000.

The world is full of criminal enterprises and terrorist organizations. The most successful ones are known as states.

Life is like surfing the Internet - there's no meaning or purpose, yet you don't really want to quit either.

The fact that slaves are allowed to elect their masters does not abolish the division in masters and slaves.

Don't try to deride me by calling me an "-ist" or "-phobe" unless you are referring to a medical condition or are trying to compliment me.

Socially-liberal capitalist democracy DOES NOT equate to free society.

Contrary to popular belief, National Socialists aren't racists. They simply hate their own race less than others.

Stolitland has standardized on the English language since our great nation's inception. All government documents are produced in English, all court proceedings are conducted in English, and nearly all of Stolitland's commerce is conducted between two English-speaking parties.

Certain segments of our society speak other languages, and other languages are taught as electives in schools. After all, there are many wealthy countries with populations that speak different languages, and we're nothing if not flexible.
