Before I start receiving any less than pleasant responses. I myself am learning the Asian languages of the country in which I now live. The indigenous people find it mostly to be rather quaint, but often point out that there is no need to because everyone speaks good English. The local people sit there listening to Europeans yakking away in Dutch, Norwegian, etc. when the locals address me (in English of course) I make a point of replying to them in their language. You would think that some people who can speak English, but who do not, might be a little embarrassed by this, and switch to at least speaking English, considering that the locals have learned it for their sake. Not a bit of it! Yak, yak, yak Dutch etc.
