Did you read the thread? If you were sent to another planet as a baby you would be speaking there alien language and you would have learned the same way you learned English. What is so hard to understand?

According the the well known orgins of Superman, he arrived on earth as an infant and was raised by the Kents....who spoke English. That and he went to school. He learned English the same way you did.

Clark Kent's first language is English. What else could it be if he had absolutely no exposure to anything else.

Unless they've wiped this out of continuity he learnt Kryptonian from the Eradicator given to him by the Cleric. The Eradicator built the fortress and eventually became a humanoid Superman itself.

Superman is believable though because he was raised on earth and his intake of knowledge was in english. Then again though from what we've been shown kryptonians somehow already spoke english (sigh). In this approaches defence though it would make stories hard to piece together if you had no idea what the other party was saying. Then again though I could see someone like Reed creating a babble fish type instrument.


apart from that comment... this thread is retarded

It was a movie, and they didn't learn english, they spoke in their native dog and cat languages, they just made it english so we could understand them. After all, the movie would have been boring as hell and just as confusing if the main characters were just going bark, meow, purr, woof, the whole time.

Well, in movie-verse they send him off as a days-old baby. I really doubt he could speak Kryptonian at that point. The the journey to earth took three years [?] and his father's voice was in the little egg package, so by the time he crashed he looked like a toddler and knew English as well as a human toddler did.

It's the obvious thing to say he learnt it from his kent family, but he's super intelligent under earths sun rays. He might have picked it up from hearing people speak

I don't see why it's such a big deal about whether or not aliens should speak English too. In a lot of series, beings from different planets or universe speaks Earth languages (either English or Japanese).

I do not know that where supermen learned the english but you can learn english from australianhelp.com review which is one the best website available to compare with other one also you can deal with more as its rating is original and many students take help from the same to get assignment done on time anyway.
