We eradicated that in Marianske Lazne, but I don't know if it's gone
elsewhere. Some of the teachers claimed it was da Breetish Inklish.
Do they still teach that "stranger" and "foreigner" are synonyms?
Are they still teaching kids to say "Negro"?
What about "usen't to"?
And what about teaching hotel school students to walk to the restaurant
table and ask, "What are your wishes?" (I wish for brotherhood among
all nations. I wish for an end to world hunger...)
