Both me and my brother were discriminated for "speaking too much English"."A primary school in Wales has been placed in special measures after inspectors found the children were speaking too much in English. Inspectors from Estyn, the Welsh education and training board, found many of the 331 children at the primary school "turn to English naturally" and as a result did not "celebrate their Welshness."
One wonders, if a language has to be rigorously enforced and is hanging on for dear life by die-hard purists, then maybe it isn't worth saving we should just let nature run its course.
The people around me tell me not to speak too much English back in my school.
My bro went to UK for education and other Malaysian students kinda ostracize him for "speaking too much English"... in an English-speaking country.
