    Smile is he/she English

    Please, dear friends and teachers,

    why do people, especially from the Americas, say something like this when they're talking about a person from UK who is married to those first ones?

    - Is he/she English?
    - Oh, Yeah, too much!

    What do they mean?

    Re: is he/she English

    Not a teacher.

    If I were to ask that question, and they were to answer as you indicated, I would get that the English person has not abandoned their English ways in favor of American ways. It might mean that they are overly emphatic on their Englishness to the point where it might be annoying to Americans around them.
