這就是香港人

香港高登:英國人黃世澤的英文範文

首先,我不否認我的英文,以英國人標準而言不夠好,否則我不會在英文版博客開門見山講,我寫是”broken”英文。我都好歡迎,那些人來指正我的文法,blogspot沒有IP查核機制,與wordpress不同。

不過,高登人那種嘲笑的態度,正是香港人英文不好的主因。

當然,並非每個香港人都有機會出國留學,亦因如此,英文你若不多用多寫便生銹,不過,你要有膽與人講英文和寫英文很重要,特別香港的講英文圈子漸見縮小(仲要有不少滿口英文,思想實為中國膠的假洋鬼子),那唯有主動放膽寫放膽講。

我還好,我面皮夠厚,我擺明就是任你這些所謂高登人、香港人嘲笑。不過,很多人,就是面皮薄,結果放棄了用英文表達自己,最後香港人英文水準就集體下降。

西方的成功在於,有一堆不怕瘀的人。我可以大大聲說,你們高登人有種就自己寫英文博客,不要一路恥笑別人,但自己什麼都沒有做。我很樂見香港會有一堆人,願意用英文寫博客的。

不過,我不認為高登人會做任何事。

  1. dont give them shit, they are just idiots…. i reckon those buggers on hkgolden are thugs…. that is stupid to pick on other’s eng.
    i doubt if they can write anything… they just know how to pick up minor mistakes… disgusting!!

  2. 我舊 blog 都已改為全英文了,不用說就是我自己翻看到找到廿幾個錯文法、用錯字的垃圾英文。但若不用,怕就我就會一直爛下去,直至見到老外時喉嚨打結的那地部。

    有錯有甚麼好怕。誰那麼空閒來指正,對的話定必多謝並跟進。坦白說,打中文也經常打錯字,文法弄得一團糟啦。卻不見得一團糟的東西,比那些看上去很通順的官樣文章失禮了。

  3. 站在BNO平權運動的角度,我會很鼓勵香港人主動用英文寫blog。

    不過,我看到高登那些除了是thugs,就沒其他。

  4. I suggest that you may look for someone in BHK elite group to proofread your English before publishing. Many of them receive(d) overseas education.

    Moreover, as a British citizen, I encourage you to spend some time to improve your English. It is our civic responsibility. Your understanding of the British culture and history is quite good.

    However, I know quite a few international school students who speak excellent English. Even though their language proficiency is very good, the common sense is still questionable. They fell into the Communist trap and used their passports.

  5. 看完Martin所講, 感觸良多。在英四年, 重來沒有一個本地朋友更正或投訴在下的爛英語(他們認為更正對方語文乃無禮之行為); 相反挑我錯處的全是華人。從前聽回流返港的前輩講:「響外國, 我是識英文, 但返到來香港我係唔識英文的!」正是這個道理。
    相信這是實容度的問題, 華人心胸窄, 挑英文錯處只是「踩人地, 抬自己」的一個手段而已(當然英文教師除外)

  6. In English forums, these idiots with too much spare time that go around correcting people’s “broken English” are called “Grammar Nazis” or “Spelling Nazis”, because they behave just like the Nazis when it comes to English grammar or spelling. xD

  7. 可能英語國家正是有一班”Grammar Nazis”既存在, 所以一般人都有所避忌去當面更正別人的英語吧?

  8. There is pointless on even debating about the negative impact ‘Grammar Nazis’ to society and giving the grand view on such social movement.

    When you were in the uk, they simply didn’t tell you that you’d made a single mistake. Stop having some lunatic mind that you were born to be british.

    It is sad to see this. Not even a British Born Indians will say that they are true brits. They know their identity, even they first made balti in Birmingham (this is a bit random, i know).

    Redeeming the rights for BNO passport holders, oh whatever!! THIS IS SHAMELESS. Go and ask any Brits what they think on this.

    PS I was born in Hong Kong, ethnically Chinese. I had been living in the UK for 10 years+. Most of my mates over here are English. I just know how they think. Have you heard of the BNP? They still have supporters, albeit a ‘nazist’ party.

  9. We should forgive “Briton Chink” for what his/her expression. I think he/she is suffered a lot from racial discrimination when he/she was in UK (10 years, not a short period). If he/she has dignity, he/she will just claim him/herself just a simple Chinese, and not level down to claim him/herself a Chink = Chinese Sink Pig. What a pity there’s a Chinese showing shame for his/her own nationality, and dissing the Hong Kong people here. There’s no differences as the gammar nazis.

    How shame is it about redeeming the rights for BNO? I heard somebody said about the 30’s in Hong Kong, that they really feel that they are more harmonize and proud to claim themselves Chinese after the Olympics. Well I don’t feel the same even I am an ethnically Chinese. Because when I was born, HK is still one of the British colonies. If they asked me about my nationality, I will tell them I am British because my nationality should reflect the history.

  10. After reading the “corrections” made by those net surfers in Golden Forum, I found that their English standard is low and they are not persuasive enough to criticise other’s English proficiency.

    They just intentionally criticise you for nothing since they are from the pro-Beijing group.

  11. I have been living in Australia for 17 years, and I finished my secondary and tertiary education here.

    Here, many of my non-Chinese friends have praised me for both my spoken and written English. They think that I should be proud of being bilingual.

    Ironically, only one ethnic Chinese I’ve met (who was my ex-boss, orginally from China) has ever expressed appreciation for my English. Many Chinese, regardless of immigrants or international students, have (intentionally) found faults in my English. They either pick on my pronounciation or my written work. What hurts me most is that these people are predominantly from HK!! This makes me “shy” speaking English in front of my HK buddies, even when non-Chinese friends are present. No matter how well I speak, they will just keep picking on me. Very discouraging indeed!

    They are dare to criticise other people’s English, but their English are not any better.
