“Those who don’t heed the warnings don’t live to admit they were stupid not to do so.” Amy Tan

For non-English speakers who have learned English, English words are both interesting and perplexing.

It’s not surprising that they use inappropriate language in situation.

It’s OK

They should not be concerned or depressed if others make fun of their accent or poor command of the English language.

“Never make fun of someone who speaks broken English. It means they know another language”

The above quote is attributed to H. Jackson Brown Jr

We regularly come across sign boards highlighting words like Warning, Danger, Caution and Notice.

What is the difference?

Danger indicates a hazardous situation that, if not avoided results in death or serious injury.

Warning indicates a hazardous situation that, if not avoided could result in death or serious injury.

Caution indicates a hazardous situation that, if not avoided could result in minor or moderate injury.

Notice addresses practices not related to physical injury, but is still considered important such as security, hygiene, housekeeping, equipment etc.

Human Psychology

“Why is it that people never listen when someone is trying to warn them?

Why must people learn the hard way?”

  1. Excellent post Philo. People can be so cruel; you’re right about people speaking in a second, third language etc. Especially as many native English speakers in my classes’ use of English is so much worse. I may not use red pens now because I’m marking electronically but sometimes there’s a lot of yellow highlighter showing grammar, syntax or spelling errors. Anyone who can speak more than one language should be proud of their efforts and accomplishments, not feel ashamed or ridiculed!
