Brilliant, did Lars also try to tell his teacher to end sentences with a cheerful "innit"?
I very much doubt it Katia, if he has heard that appalling suffix at all, it would have been from hearing it from London's adolescents when he had been visiting here.
Both my Grandsons speak fluent English with barely a trace of an accent now, and my daughter-in-law sounds like a BBC announcer.
Incidentally they migrated to Brisbane, Australia about 7 years ago, my son, with great perception having declared Europe as "finished."
Mind you, he said the same about England when he opted to stay in Germany after he married.
I recall an email from Rolf, the younger Grandson, after he had enrolled in an Australian school.
He wrote, "Opa, they speak English here, but they sound funny!"
This from a kid who would say "I vant some vine gums, please." when he was small!
