BBC News – How can you be British without speaking English?

This story has a familiar ring to it but from a different perspective. How many of us Brits living in Italy are there who make little attempt to learn Italian because we “don’t have to”  or “don’t need to” ?

Did you feel a sense of outrage that immigrants could be so dismissive of our culture ? Read this article again, substituting “British or English” for “Romanian” and “Italy or Italian” for “UK or English” and this will probably produce a pang of guilt among some of you.

So what are you going to do about it ?
