This is something I posted in regards to the negativity surrounding the BR/LA servers:
I have a Brazilian friend who speaks and types English very well. He explained to me that he got an early start when he was young because his parents sent him and his siblings to lessons and they worked hard at it every day. He also said that nowadays, English lessons there are expensive and that a handful of those who do take it may not practice outside of the class (which isn't helpful, anyway, really).
He also said that he knows people who play on the NEW LA/BR servers may not even be aware they will be playing with English speakers. Just as -I- was surprised when I moved to Blackhand which has quite a few LA/BR servers in the BG. Some do try and some don't. JUST like some English speakers try and others don't.
It is NOT their fault that Blizzard placed them in BGs the way they have. It takes equal effort and I'm more than happy to try. I DO have some rude phrases in my arsenal, of course. ;) Just like I have plenty for my English speaking bros.
Below is a list of actual BR/LA realms:
Before LA/BR realms were introduced, BR/LA'ers rolled on US servers that were recommended to them (which means it could go either way). A few I know of are:

That's a lot of phrases. What I did is take what I thought I would most commonly use and made macros to put on my second, unused bar. I think I only did 5 or 6.
Also! I'm not a total bleeding heart. I know people are jackasses no matter where they're from. If you know someone is being rude to you, here is my favorite phrase:
Cala a boca- Shut your mouth!
