A while ago I came up with this idea that after I move to Ireland I would start teaching English again because Ireland and Scotland – post brexit – would be the only places that still have English or still need it as an official language! mostly because in Scotland you don’t have any other language really, as for Ireland, I don’t see, realistically, English being removed as an official language even though it’s not The official language.
what’s funny is that Europe has now made a joke regarding something similar.
The remark came from European Commissioner for Economic Affairs, Pierre Moscovici, who was presenting the EU’s autumn forecast, his last under the current Parliament before Ursula Von Der Leyen swoops in on her coveted role. The Frenchman said: “After Brexit, English language will be banned everywhere in the European Union.” He then added: “No, I was joking.”
