The scene is hilarious AND does a ton to show the true character that Selfridge is.

Why was he firing people? It's not like they can go home.
YOU'RE FIRED. now get back to work.

That seems like something he's say, actually.

It's the deleted scene "a long way from home" or something like that. It's near the end of the list.

hrh Many people say that one! ::) Well, I have to say it had personally never bothered me, but now that everyone is mentioning it I do find that it's really not a good scene after all. :P

I don't think they'd reopened the school yet by that scene had they? If they had, it was far less than 3 months. And don't forget, Grace had YEARS to teach the Na'vi before they shut down the school. That being said, many people who speak a foreign language fluently, still speak with a strong accent.

They reopened the school? I thought Grace was just back to visit.

Are we talking about the "I came like this, this you. I turn..." scene? Gonna have to disagree again. I feel her English remains consistent throughout the movie, but that's just my opinion.

As for the school, Jake says: "I talked Mo'at into letting Grace back into the village", so I very well may be in the wrong here. However, we see Grace talking to the children. While that's hardly a guarantee that the school is reopened, I feel it does imply it. Why would they let her back into the village but not let her teach?

I always make the excuse for her that she's very excited there and having more trouble finding words in English than she ordinarily does.

But that's a legitimate excuse, don't you think? I don't know how many of you have really put time and effort into learning a foreign language, but I promise you this: You may be able to speak fairly fluent in the class room and while practicing, but holding a real conversation perfectly takes YEARS of practice, and if you're trying to speak quickly, it's even harder.

What I meant was that it is understood that Neytiri was one of Grace's best students, hence why she can understand/speak English as well as she can. This is when the school was open, before her sister got shot.

The 3 months part is that Jake had been with her for three months, so she learned even more english from him, and he learned Na'vi from her.

Maybe no one wanted to go back to the school and see blood splats? If my friends were shot in front of me, I wouldn't go back to where it happened.  :(

i dont think her english in that scene makes the scene looks bad, just my personal opinion. i mean yea she might get too excited that she's having a hard time choosing which words to say. and i think i can hear she stutters a bit, which seems to be indication of over-excitement. i sometimes stutter when saying something when i'm over-excited myself

I agree. The Na'vi learning English probably focused on specific contexts, much like any person does when learning a language to a conversational level, before they become fluent in it. After all, I'd say that even the people here who are excellent at Na'vi might struggle to discuss something exclusive to humans in origin such as programming in Na'vi, because there are not always comparable words and concepts. It's another example of how Avatar is so realistic that people complain about the realism because they aren't used to that level of realism in films :P
