кстати, они сами это знают
Miscommunicating, misunderstanding, bla-bla-bla...
Imho, it's all cuz of english is too poor
несколько раз слышал от native speakers that they think English is
2) stupid language
They also know about "Великий и могучий" and often ask me it
And now I'm understanding that it is really "Великий и могучий"
IMHO English is not poor; it?s just very functional, which makes it relatively easy to learn. Have you tried to learn French, for example? What a f%%king pain in the arse!! Have you seen any foreigners trying to learn Russian? I once tried to explain some of the Russian grammar to an English-speaker and understood what a pain it was for him to learn Russian.
I would rather deal with occasional miscommunication problems than with a too_sophisticated_language, such as French.
