Illegal I am not, but Alien I am and learning Canadian English (a mix of 
American and British plus EH) and not being a great speller, then comming 
here it is totaly different. Litre=liter, Centre=Center, Cheque=check, 
Touque=tobogan, Loonie=$1 coin, Twoonie=$2. coin, double double =coffee with 
2 sugar &2 cream, etc etc That and British I think has to be the hardest 
English to learn with Austrailian following close behind. Got your trousers 
dirty? I had to laugh today another Nurse spelt the medical name for belly, 
Abdomineal, when its Abdomenal geez even with a degree somepeople cant 
spell. what the hell i cant spell either, but I can swear in 4 languages :D  
woo kaers fff yr speln b bat, azz lung ass u kan cuss, hu gevs a $h!+.

I'll second that.  I had to correct someone on TrailForums recently who 
posted a question about glacier "glass's."  Can you believe it?  He thought 
"glasses" was spelled "glass's."

It's stunning how many people don't know the basics of the English language. 
  (Maybe it's un-PC to teach English in the schools today, as it may offend 
illegal aliens.)
