Ted, as a Brit I have to say we are bad at language through laziness more than anything else. A young child can learn one, two or three languages at the same time easily, no ear for language needed just to be immersed in the language enough at an early age.

Even more bankrupt. Membership doesn't mean you can lord over the people. You have duties and responsibilities and must even work harder than most.
