Are you speaking proper English?

The more I travel, the more English I hear. Catch phrases and idioms have crept into British English. Americanized words have even found their way into German or Spanish (Everyone knows what the word “computer” means). Much of this has to do with media. American sitcoms (think Seinfeld or Friends) have taken the world by storm. But is the era of spreading American jargon gone? Have we reached a point where there are so many different opportunities and choices that American film, TV and music isn’t the worldwide domination we once had?   Some seem to think so.
