People who whine about MW2 on youtube are lifeless creeps who should be gutted and sold to necrophiliacs for a couple of dollars. End of argument.

I agree with Chemda, if Jesse is Proficient in Spanish it means he is an expert at it... ergo fluent.

While I'm thinking of it... Synonyms for like are: according to, agnate, akin, alike, allied, allying, analogous, approximating, approximative, close, coextensive, cognate, commensurate, comparable, compatible, conforming, congeneric, congenerous, consistent, consonant, corresponding, double, equal, equaling, equivalent, homologous, identical, in the manner of, jibing, matching, much the same, near, not far from, not unlike, on the order of, parallel, related, relating, resembling, same, selfsame, such, twin, undifferentiated, uniform

Just because, like, Jesse seems to like, need to say, like, every like few words... and not everyone likes it.

LOL

Here is a uni chart for studying abroad:
http://www.uq.edu.au/uqabroad/forms/language-grid.pdf

There are several levels of proficiency. The lowest one is A1, which can be summarized as "can understand common words and simple phrases, can interact in simple way provided the other person speaks slowly and clearly, can write simple stuff like holiday greetings"

Then there's A2 followed by B1, which is roughly "can understand TV, enter unprepared in a conversation, talk about ambitions, write about personal interests".

B2 is required to study abroad, which is roughly "can understand lectures, participate in discussion, write essays on my subject".

Proficiency ranges all the way up to C2, which is probably more than most native speakers can do as it involves putting forth logically coherent arguments.

Jesse is probably A1, definitely just barely in the range of "proficiency". I guess the desired definition for proficiency varies by subject for each resume. The required level for "proficient in acting" on Jesse's resume is much higher than the required level for "proficient in Spanish" on his resume, so I'd say it's fine. The meaning of proficiency in Spanish for a translator's resume certainly differs vastly from a comedian's resume.

south african?!!

Having lived in South Africa and being married to a South African, i can tell you that Jesse's SA accent is like listening to Dick Van Dyk trying to speak Cockney English. it was TERRIBLE! maybe that means he is "profficient" at it....

Seconded. I had a South African girlfriend and his accent was just miles off.

But then, all Jesse's accents are awful. Lest we forget, here's a dose of his German (around the 12:45 mark):



But my favourite shitty Jesse accent has to be his Irish one (reference Joyce to the World: Track 26) where he actually punctuates his impression with comedy 'ta-tiddily-tiddily' noises to make it recognisable. Good grief. And he's one of those American types that calls himself Irish too!

Forshame, Joyce. Your resume is a tissue of lies.
