Where I live, when a person praises himself/herself, the listener may retort "Self-praise is international disgrace."
Do native speakers use such a sentence on others?
Is the suggestion that people disgracing themselves by praising themselves is an international problem (ie people all over the world are guilty of it)?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I thought it meant that it brought shame upon his nation as viewed by others.
