Its part of the Spanish language.

In spanish, you say something like EX. (Roger es inteligente. No?) .. meaning Roger is smart right?

more or less he's asking if they agree. if its correct

the reason he says it is because Rafael native tongue is spanish, and its just part of the language. why does it matter anyway?

because it's freaking annoying and like you said in spanish it's ok, but in english it just sounds horrible! when he really would care about learning english he would stop with that language **** and I never heard any spanish player using it so damn often like him

Please, if any TV or sports personality annoys you or bothers you, you have a right to turn them off. Example, I happen to not like Britney Spears, so I dont listen to her music, when she comes on TV, I change channels.

Hint : I dont go around telling people that she annoys me.

I've seen and heard it. But maybe it's not as common as I thought.
I realise it's common and there is nothing meant by it. But it does come off as being a bit arrogant to me. It sounds like he's answering the question and then when he says "no?" it's like he's saying "duh, you should already know that." But, that's just an impression, not what he means.

mas·och·ism ( P ) Pronunciation Key (ms-kzm)
n.
1. The deriving of sexual gratification, or the tendency to derive sexual gratification, from being physically or emotionally abused.
2. The deriving of pleasure, or the tendency to derive pleasure, from being humiliated or mistreated, either by another or by oneself.
3. A willingness or tendency to subject oneself to unpleasant or trying experiences.


So basically:
1) You clearly don't like the way Nadal says 'no' at the end of each sentence.
2) Yet you still listen to his interviews.
3) You are a masochist!

Nadal or Roger didnt have to speak in anything other than their mother tongue. Having knowledge of multiple languages is a skill and it shows that they arent just flukes.

No you weren't dreaming, it really was passed. I think the main reason it got past was to give the US a dominant language, and would take out the classes that are taught in Spanish (ie science in spanish, history in spanish, etc), but of course would leave the course of Spanish for people to learn a foreign language. Honestly it's about time, every country has a dominant language, though some countries have dominant language in regions of the country.

It won't have any effect at all because the schools will continue to do what they do. Ballots are still printed in 20 (just a guess) different languages even though you can't vote unless you are a citizen and you shouldn't be a citizen unless you can speak the local language (which is English as of this date). DMV (or RMV) information is still printed in various languages. All at great cost to the taxpayer.
Anyone who tries to change will find themselves in court. The court system will more than likely find any law that specifies a language to be unconstitutional and strike it down. So the law, if passed, has no teeth and is unsupportable. It's just congress shilling for votes from the patriots.

Ok, so if English isn't your native language, then why are you having such a fit over how Nadal chooses to speak his English? Personally, I'm just happy that he tries to speak English for English speaking countries' benefits. By the way in the English language Countries get capitalized unlike in the German language, took German for 4 semesters at college.

The reason people are telling you to work on your grammar, is because you're complaining about the exact same thing except in the spoken text. I mean honestly, do you realize just how idiotic your complaint is, when you turn around and do the exact same thing in the written text?

I think it will stop the classes in the school. As far as the other things, well those things will take time. But things like directions in something you buy will always have many different languages because the product is sold to many different countries.

Not so sure that something that goes to court would fall in favor of having the other language. I mean I understand what you're saying about the courts maybe taking the unconstitutional view, but I'm not so sure that it will be a strong enough case. It really seems to be one of these on the bubble areas, we'll just have to see what comes of it.

There's your topic, and your posting, between the second set of question marks. Your complaint is over Nadal saying no quite often, when he ends sentences, when speaking english.

And as I said, you're complaining about a spoken grammatical problem, while you are making grammatical mistakes in the written text. I think it's you that needs to reread what everyone else wrote, instead of telling us to reread what you wrote, to understand what you wrote, when we know exactly what you're saying.

Mine telling me what I didn't get right. This is a complaint of his usage of the word no, in the English language, when speaking English. Your native tongue is German. Again, why are you complaining about his use of a word in a non-native tongue, when English isn't your native tongue. And this time try answering the question instead of trying to tell me that I didn't understand what you wrote.

what do think?

Well that's the problem of starting a thread, you will start it and you'll ask about their thoughts, definitely they'll have thousands of ways to express it. So let them speak their mind, stop questioning nor contesting their thoughts, it's their opinion, so let's respect them.
Going back to the thread. So slapping a person just because he's not good at it is just unfair. You can't force a person to change if he doesn't one, he is trying anyway and if he feels he can express himself the way he does, then there shouldn't be a problem. People understand him anyway and that's what only counts, no matter how awkward for him to do it. Again this is just an opinion.

South, Central and North America is part of America.
America it's not just USA.

So, basically, yes, Spanish is the most-spoken language in America.

Yep, need it pretty much anywhere you go now, just knowing english doesn't cut it in a ton of places, knowing Spanish is already pretty much a bonus now in North America and pretty much a necessity in South America and Central America, a few years and it will be a necessity in North America also.

In spanish, you say something like EX. (Roger es inteligente. No?) .. meaning Roger is smart right?

more or less he's asking if they agree. if its correct

Him saying no is probably a bad habit thats translated over from his native language.

That's exact.

Shamo, learn a bit from these guys.

Shamo you say that youy make lots of mistakes when talking English because , like rafa, it is not your native language.

Fair enough. yu also say you do not make the same mistakes over and over again. Again, fair enough.

But do you have to speak a non-native language in front of a packed room with people taking non stop pictures of you with cameras shoved up your nose? Do you have to speak English in a room where people fire questions at you in your non-native language as soon as you have finished speaking?

It's a nerves thing. All that going on, must be difficult to concentrate on speaking a difficult language when Getty Iamges has a camera up your nose and "the Daily Times" are asking non-stop questions about you and Federer.



















,no?

Wow, does Roger really speak 15 languages? Thats quite an accomplishment.

Where do people GET this mis-information??? Federer speaks 4 languages.... English, French, German, Swiss - German (I won't go into explaining what that is)

This is no big deal in Europe. Most people speak 5 languages fluently, many 6 or 7. Younnes El Anouyi speaks 7 languages ...and he's from Morocco.

Learn other peoples languages, visit their country, and talk to them. and your vision of the world will open up.

And Rafa's English has gotten a lot better since last year. And he understands English well enough to know that Bud Collins' questions to him are irritating and condescending. Poor old Bud talks to Rafa with his not year perfect English as if he was a small child just learning to talk.

I think it's more like between 5-7. Still remarkable, but definitely not 15.

I had always heard that Federer speaks four languages but in an interview at Wimby I heard Roger himself say that he speaks three. Just FWIW.

Roger speaks three fluently, but 2 others broken.

I don't think he is fluent. He knows some words. That's why he could understand Ljubicic. The same for swedish i think

It's like saying "you know" or "wright?" in english. In spanish you say "no"
