ISN'T THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF SPEAKING A LANGUAGE IS TO COMMUNICATE ?
Yes I learned English my whole life
Yes I studied in an English medium school
Guess what , I still suck in English writing and speaking !
Today while writing this post ; i was siting with a video opened next to my laptop on my phone and the title of the video was how to use exclamation marks in a sentence and the reason for watching this video was because i got called out today for my bad English writing and this reminded me of the time i was called out for not speaking good English despite studying in a good college ( my college had a reputation for kids being really good in English and since being good in English translates to being smart ; the kids being smart ) I was clearly not one of those smart kids, that day i felt very ashamed and today when I got called out I didn't felt ashamed, I felt angry .
I want to know what right does people have to assume that every person who speaks in English have to know each and every rule of grammar or how to use punctuation marks or need to have a fancy accent isn't the whole purpose of using a language is to communicate and were we not taught since childhood that as long as others can understand what you are trying to communicate you are doing a good job .
i want to let everyone who read this post , talks to me to know that for me English is just like any other language . there are 1000's or more only languages in the world and we don't know all so a person who called me out for speaking and writing bad English will be called out for speaking these languages wrong because i think it's impossible to know everything right and speak everything right and at that time you will be asking yourself isn't the whole purpose of speaking a language is to communicate !!!!!
i felt it is important to speak about this because if you have read what I write I am assuming that you must have been able to understand at least 60% of what I try to convey through my writing if not 100% and if you can't than ask me I will clear your doubts ; another advantage of language is you can ask question and clear your doubts but don't try to insult me for not knowing English as good as yours . i don't get the concept of looking down on a person for not knowing a language perfectly and it's not just with English but there are lots of places in the world who assumes their language to be superior and looks down upon other people for not knowing it .
i am saying this on the behalf of all the people who have been pulled down for not speaking a language perfectly ; yes I plan to speak, I plan to make mistake in process but no I don't plant to get insulted in the process of learning . so next time don't tolerate these language Nazis .
