Default How English sounds to non-English speakers.

Randomly found this today whilst youtube surfing. Wasn't paying a whole lot of attention initially so didn't even understand what was going on at first. Funny though once I realised what was happening.

They're speaking gibberish. Some of its complete nonsense, others backwards sentences or words out of order. If your only vaguely listening to it then it just sounds like they're having a conversation.

It's kinda like how English people interpret french. You pick out bits of a conversation as opposed to the whole thing and if you don't know any at all then it's just rubbish.

No it's French, just because I don't understand it doesn't mean they are talking rubbish.

It's all a bit parochial for my taste, but what ever floats your boat I guess.
