Just English? I only know one person that really knows how to speak Spanish here(Arg. and Spain thorugh what I've read from internet). In almost half of the books I've read for school, college, etc, made from not just professors but from doctors, I've found several grammar or vocabulary mistakes and more than nothing, conceptual, tautologyc and stilistic faults. People generally don't master their mother tongue, unfortunately, you can't expect to much of the thinking ability of someone that doesn't know his main tongue. I have to add to the black list: all newspapers, all tv programs, movies, books... yesterday I was surfing the net for reading some writer's blogs (including self named writers) and... if they write like that, I don't want to think of the non-writers. All the literature and in more wide terms, all effor to improve as a human or to try to know yourself better, all the artistics and mind expressions, don't go well with this worldwide society. They aren't a commodity.
And I'm sure this is happening in all languages and countrys and not with minor impact in sensibles foreheads. And each day is worst.
So English or Spanish, Uruguay or Eeuu or Australia, your eyes and ears have to walk with caution and they will ache with every letter-step.
Please, don't hesitate to correct my English.
