Wrong... :P The most common language is mostly Maltese with quite a bit of English mixed in. :lol: Very few people use actual Maltese.

how come? I think it all depends on the area one lives or where one was brought up.

I agree when it come to the "pepe" people but that isn't a language because there usually isn't any method to it. But majority of Maltese speakers use certain English words invariably... things like anyway, so, and many others I can't think of right now. Words like "baby" (instead of "tarbija") can be argued to have become Maltese words (bejbij :lol: ) but words like "anyway" it havn't been accepted so it has to be classified as a dialect which is not pure Standard Maltese.

Of course I might be wrong that the majority don't speak pure Maltese, but from just everyday life I notice that very very few people use only words accepted in Maltese. Obviously even if you consider it to be a dialect, it's still a version of Maltese so MUTU is right, but I thought I would point that out because students often ask me why they keep hearing random English words when they hear Maltese people speaking. :mrgreen:

Meanwhile, just a couple of streets away from where I live, some genius decided to put up this roundabout. :lol:

Image

To the right from where I'm taking the photo, there is no street, and as you can see on the right side of the photo, if you go straight ahead there's a one-way street, so there is literally only one direction you can go from my position. The same applies if you come out of the stop sign.

Just 20m away or so:

Image

Not sure what this is supposed to mean... legal direction to go to in case you jump over the wall with a bike? :lol:

An hour or so ago I was listening to the radio and I heard a young lady reading her poems in Maltese.
She is from Siberia... been here for 15 years ... and she does not only speaks perfect Maltese but also writes poems with our language...
amazing... I literally cried...
Her name Yana Psaila(she is married to a Maltese)
