This is the multicultural uk.
You dont have to speak or understand our language.
To force it as being a requirement would be that r word.
Although im sure most know a few lines but i wont go there.

Truth is to get citizenship you need to speak the language and pass a test and to get anywhere work wise you would need to speak the language, it stands to reason

And all those Brits living on the continent, do they master the language? hardly. We are the least multilingual people on the planet! You need to get some proper perspective and enlightenment in your life and stop believing all the rubbish in the daily mail

Why did Tong Po think running at Kurt with a flame would make any difference?

Ha ha you are funny
I think a majority of people who dont live in the uk from other countries make more effort to learn english than the ones who come here.
Firstly why would you need to learn the language and secondly most ex pats do learn the native tongue. Go speak to some and you will find out thats how it is. You need to know the basics.
Only lazy and selfish people wouldnt make the effort. I was in portugal for 4 days and managed to learn please and thankyou. Its not hard so stop going all daily mail about the subject.
Im right youre wrong end of

There is one less multilingual people on the planet than the British and that is the Americans. Brits walk into a tourist tat shop and say "Do you speak English?" Then they carry on speaking in English without waiting for the answer. The Americans are the same except they omit to ask the question altogether.

It goes without saying that there is a gulf of difference between learning to say please and thank you and learning to speak a language properly (which takes years). However, most locals will appreciate any effort made by a foreigner - especially a Brit or a Yank, whose reputations precede them - to learn at least some of their language; and they will generally forgive some confusion over the difference between ser and estar, the odd dative case after a German preposition with a verb of motion, or a past participle in French which doesn't agree with its preceding direct object.

That is a benefit to the tat shop owner that a tourist is actually going in there then.
I really dont think they are bothered if thats what you are, a tourist spending money.
The point is if you are living in that country then out of respect you attempt to assimilate with them.
I reckon most ex pats do whereby lots dont bother when they live here.

Got any evidence or stats to back that up?

To be fair learning a 2nd language or English is important for most foreigners, whenever i've met foreigners working here their English is bang on, you go into Pret where most are foreign their English is spot on. Over here we don't teach our kids languages, it's usually optional. All our Brits who live in Spain might learn a few basics but they won't speak proper Spanish because most people there speak English

So i'm sorry, you're initial point is not valid

Huge swathes of Americans speak a second tongue. Primarily Spanish.
