French Choose English

for their Eurovision entry. French MP complains. Come on France admit it, English is best. To use a Latin phrase meaning French language, English is the lingua franca of pop. Just be pleased you can sing in another language, how many English stars could manage that?

PS being Eurovision I use the word stars in its most sarcastis way.

  1. The use of English is just linguistic imperialism. However many foreigners do not realise it.
    You might like to check the Esperanto version though http://esperanto.net

  2. It’s not linguistic imperialism, it is simply that English does the job that esperanto was designed for. Nearly everyone understands it!
