The European Union (EU) are looking at reforming English spelling in a five year phase-in plan that would be known as "Euro-English". The goal is to standardise English spelling so that non-native speakers can learn English spelling more easily.
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". This should reduse any synisism about the plan. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have 1 less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20% shorter.

The letter "x" will be replased by "ks" and the "-ed" ending on verbs with "-t" or "-et". Although only sometimes spelt and pronounst as "t", in the interests of konsistensy, all "-ed" words will be spelt this way.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be ekspektet to reach the stage where more komplikatet changes are possible. The EU will enkorage the removal of double leters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they should go away.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" wiz "v".

During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropt from vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters. After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer. Ze drem of a unite t urop vil finali kum tru!
