Paulo, its true that one can find some sort of English spoken in many parts of the world. I don't agree with you on your other points, however.
I havn't been to Brazil, so I don't know, but I just fail to comprehend how there could exist any compulsion for Brazilians to speak English, in Brazil, with other Brazlians. It really makes no sense.
And in my experience, NSE Americans in the US rarely ever hassle anyone over the way they speak English. As someone already mentioned here, it is quite uncommon. In fact, Americans who do that are often ridiculed by others for their narrow-mindedness (and they often speak a narrow brand of English themselves). America was and is built on immigrants who are not native-speakers. Tolerance for non-native speech of English is built into the culture in most places. In fact, it is so widespread and habitual that the problem for most immigrants is that the native-speakers never correct their mistakes, even when the native-speaker is having trouble understanding the non-native.
