    I can speak English because we learn it at school (11 years with English). But I speak English because then people on the forum understand me. ^^

    It's due to the fact that English is a world-language, everybody is learning it/learnd it.
    It would be stupid speaking Norwegian or some other specific languages, since probably 5% would be able to speak that.

    English is (correct me if I'm wrong here) one of the most common 2nd languages to learn in europe.

    That makes it easier for everyone, as well as the fact that language programs in US schools are notoriously crappy....

    for example movies are better in O-Tone (english)
    and the English subject in school is better then the German one :grin:

    and well, english is much easier to learn then any other language i know. MUCH

    so all (at least west-) european students/pupils learn it.

    english is imho cooler^^ (i play all games in english, too)
