Do you want speak English or Globish?

Someone recently told me about something called Globish.  I'm not even sure if it deserves to be capitalized!  It's a form of English that allows for everyone to be understood with a limited amount of words.  I'd like you to read the article (there are about 4 pages and you have to click at the bottom of each page to continue) and make comments.

Here is the link: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article667004.ece

Can you think of some expressions in English that could be changed into Globish?

Here is a video from youtube that features a song from the movie Les Choristes.  If you thought that understanding songs in English was hard, wait until you read this interpretation!  Comments?

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog. I am the English assistant at André Malraux High School in Remiremont. This will be a place to speak and discuss in English. We can all post here and I think it will be a fun way to learn and practice English. I plan on using this blog for all the classes I work with at the high school, so I expect to see a lot of people posting here! I am happy to be in France helping you to improve your English. I will see you all soon.
