PostSubject: Why do we Speak English?   17th September 2008, 1:05 am

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S, England, Canada, Australia and France. At a cocktail reception later that evening, he found himself standing with a large group of officers included personnel from most of the other countries

Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks when a French Admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied "Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."
