This is a useful skill for all English speakers travelling abroad. The important thing to remember is that all people who live in non-English speaking countries are idiots, which is why they don't speak English.

edit Three Key Concepts

edit Speak Loudly and Slowly

Clearly, if they don't understand you when you speak at a normal volume and pace, raising your voice and slowing down your speech will elucidate your meaning. Remember, you need to shout. Not doing so might confuse the foreign conversant. The addition of inarticulate gestures is also helpful. In short, just pretend that you're William Shatner.

edit Disregard all Rules of Grammar

Omit infinitives, prepositions, conjunctions, adjectives, and adverbs from your speech and stick to simple constructions that use only nouns and verbs. Too many words will confuse the tiny foreign brain. If talking about yourself, remember to say "me" instead of "I."

edit Babytalk

Make sure to pronounce the words that remain as if you were speaking to an infant. This is particularly effective when speaking to Chinese people,also pronounce words at least twice if they are quite hard.

edit Additional

Even English itself can sound like a foreign language.

edit For Americans in England

Remember that a posh British accent is nine tenths affectation. To affect it properly, pretend you have a ten pound weight attached to your lower lip and a turd under your nose. Alternately, pretend to be flamingly homosexual. It's good to affix "eah" to the end of every appropriate word, as in: "Weah met Ladyeah Welles, and sheah greeted us most cordialleah, and then weah all had teah." Talk about how much you enjoy your tea, how great the metric system is, and how much you love the Queen. Note: it is not wise to do this in Scotland.

edit For the English in Ameriker

That's right: Ameriker. The key to sounding like a real American is mimicking the protagonist in all your favorite Western films. Make frequent use of words like "ain't" and "durnit." Remember that Americans call "trousers", "pants", and "pants", "underwear" providing you with many an opportunity to make juvenile jokes (i.e., "I can see your pants!"). Important topics of discussion include baseball, animal husbandry, how much you love/hate the President, and Baywatch.

edit For non-English speaking in English-speaking lands

If you want talk.. with English person of english speaking herritages. You say: "Hello" "How do do you do?" you say then "Please"! English person then say "Hey go home you fucking foreigner" It mean "You are very good, visiting here, we make money of you, so be friend and be boyfriend with me and be a man in bed with me" This = bad. Because it's homosexual (gay) invite. He is a gay. so you stab this man. Really big knife... OKs?
