Learn English!

What is wrong with the following picture? Do not worry, you have a couple of seconds to guess...

Done yet? You got it? You probably have seen a million times in the city.. but you do not know what is wrong with it.

Put yourself in the shoes of one who needs to "Learn English!" Do you think you would know how to "Read English!" or maybe even "Recognize English!" I think not. Thus, how in the world, could you, our fresh off the boat foreigner, come to this advertisement, and suddenly understand that it offers you your dream of learning English???


And herein lies my complete and utter disgust.

It makes sense. Just put "ENGLISH" in big block letters like they do and you'll have people signing up for these classes. Now tell me their phone operators speak nothing but English and you might be on to something. Plus, don't some of these have "Learn English" in at least two dozen languages?

Sorry, Dmitry. Sorry. And when the fuck are you going to respond to my email?
