    I would like to settle this in a quick and easy way, but, juxtaposing two users and determining who is a better speaker is long and complicated?

    Another question is, "What are legitimate ways to test for mastery in the World's most spoken language?"

    I was thinking of a series of tests and averaging the scores for the tests, and whoever has the highest mean score was the best English speaker.

    What do you think, brothers (and maybe sisters if there still are any)?

    EDIT - The name of this award idea is called "The Anglophone Award".

    I don't see why not; I have hardly heard of a French/German/Far Eastern persons (the U.S. Census calls them "Asians" :rolleyes:)/Africans/etc. who speak English better than an Brit/Australian/Canadian/all the national entities that were British Empire colonies in the World's history, but, I know very well they are out there.

    I know Mexicans who speak way better English than many Americans; as I have said before, Americans desecrate the English language, and, that is worse than an American tourist who only speaks English and does not keep up with the customs of a non-English country.

    Heck, I'll go as far as saying Michael Schumacher speaks English better than Former President George W. Bush.
  4. I don't think Bush spoke English :\ He spoke his own messed up language no one understood or cared about.

    Obiousli is I
  6. I like the idea :D Even though I'm not English and will never be able to pass such a test, could be a nice challenge. Also, it would be interesting to see how good others' English is.

    Not having an accent when speaking to my friends is good enough, I hope! :roflmao:

    Best English?

    Well that rules out all British users then :p
  10. Sign me up for the challenge.
    How will we test our knowledge, English language related.

    Okay, writing is one thing and should be sufficient, but will we test our speaking/accent skills? :)
