Leslie, curious question - why English? True enough during my visits to Brussels almost all the natives i encountered spoke English just fine, but it was also my impression that they didn't really like to. It seemed that they only spoke English to cater to us dumb, egotistical, monolinguistic Americans.
don't know - but the french HATE speaking anything but french and treat all english speakers as some for of inferior life form....
i went to an english 'public' school where, when i was 8 or 9, i asked my english master if i could learn french (though for the life of me i can't remember why). he peered over the top of his bi-focals and boomed out, 'why on earth would you want to learn a foreign language wand, you want to speak to the natives or something!?'
interestingly enough i've lived a number of non-english speaking countries and never had any problems (then again, i might have but never realised it ;-)) not speaking the local language.
I laughed for 3.615 minutes that was quite a production. I really loved the guy on the bicycle staring at the girl on the motorcycle. The whole thing really was put together well.
I was having a rough day (finals coming up) and I really liked that.
