Instead of deceiving ourselves about the English language competency of most Jamaicans, we should face the facts. English is not being taught efficiently. That's largely because the powers that be assume that the mother language of most Jamaicans isn't actually a language. They insist that it's nothing but a 'corruption' of English. Even so, they don't seem to know how to cure the disease.
Mi a big woman. Mi know mi mind. Mi naa follow 'Bible' go burn fire pon gay people. Mi a big uman. Mi nuo mi main. Mi naa fala 'Baibl' go bon faiya pan gie piipl. I'm an adult. I can make up my own mind. I'm not going to uncritically accept any interpretation of the Bible that claims we should call down hellfire on gay people.
If it's any consolation, having two 'Gleaners' is a good thing. It gives the consumer choice. Monopolies have a way of becoming very arrogant.
In Jamaica, for example, we desperately maintain the fiction that English is the mother tongue of most citizens. It is not. English is a second language that is inefficiently taught in schools and inadequately learnt by many students./ Tek Jamieka far instans.
