What about you? Can you say at least a few decent sentences in other languages than English?

Re: Worst English Speakers

Spain, Italy, France...in general all these countries where we see all television & cinema dubbed in our own languages we tend to speak awful English

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Have you actually ever heard him speak English??? He is great at it.

I do agree, though, Rafa's English is not the best. He has improved though.

Re: Worst English Speakers

I don't think Li Na's was that bad, just that her accent is very thick...

Re: Worst English Speakers

Alona Bondarenko, I feel so sorry for her, when the interviewer is asking a 1 minute long question and she just answers yes followed by the interviewer holding the microphone for some further seconds in front of her mouth.

I'm talking about after the match against Kirilenko in Dubai this year.
