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.

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?
I ate at the cafeteria the other day just like I usually do! Here is what happened!

Hello everyone. I have made my first audio clip and I
will be placing a link in this message. It is basically a recording of
the introduction message, so you should be able to follow along.
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.
