What did you work as when you lived in Norwich?


Not sure I'd trust Russians as the best judges of others abilities to speak English, if you told me you had American or British friends I'd agree.

They don't really speak English in Norwich though, they mostly just make farm yard noises in that part of the country, OO-ARGH! :wink:

Oh ok. But here you provide another example of a sentence that means nothing at all.

Middle-English was a precursor to modern English and spoken during the medieval period. So you're telling us your Russian friends 'survey' with medieval era English?

Did you 'survey' in your previous jobs using 'middle English' too?
