English and Pidjin

Thank you Miss Sireheti for surfacing such an interesting topic which seemed to draw a lot of interest from readers far and wide.

Pidjin to me is a pride and I can't leave it behind in my stife to learn English.
So far I can speak Kwaraae, Pidjin, and can speak a bit of English.

While I am proud of them all I am still trying to learn,if God'S willing, other new Languages. I think we need not to be ashame of what ever langauge we speak.
I reckon it's good to learn new languages.

But then the choice is an individual thing. We need not to force every one to speak English.

So let's be realistic and admit that not every Solomon Islander can speak English though it's an official language.
