I am actually speaking Rigelian. By an astonishing coincidence, both of our languages are exactly the same. As unlikely as it may seem, most alien species can speak English — or Japaneseor French, or whatever the language of the show's producers and intended demographic is.
This has the added advantage that the characters can sometimes lapse into their native tongue when the script demands. Sometimes this is a case of Translator Microbes or the Translation Conventionwhere the aliens are logically assumed to be speaking their own language and the words are getting translated en route and any questions of why their lip movements should synch with their translated dialogue instead of syncing with their original tongue can be simply ignored.
On the other hand, sometimes the aliens really did learn to speak English — hey, if they've been watching our television shows all this timethey could have easily figured it out by now. Of course, if a story is not about a First Contact scenario, and the aliens have been in contact with humanity for a while, the aliens speak English because they have dealings with English-speaking humans.
Or in stories where aliens have been influencing Earth civilization for long enough, it could be that they speak English because it was their language first and they taught it to us.
Sometimes, authors also like to have some short explanation, even if it is only a quick Handwave. If you want to keep things lively, using a Bilingual Dialogue with alienese as the foreign language is always cool.
If you want your aliens to be quite scary, have them instead speak in the Black Speech. Usually these are Acceptable Breaks from Realitybecause not knowing what the aliens are saying would be quite uninteresting, and having the show's cast spend the first half of every episode learning how to say 'hello' in the Alien Language of the Week seriously undercuts the story and makes the people who are listening to it in-universe with sentences like "I don't understand this".
However, Aliens Speaking English isn't totally inevitable either, as it isn't that impossible to put an imaginary language and English subtitles. Sometimes, the language is quite like the earthen language of the author, but the words and expressions involving "earth" and "human" are replaced by puns using the word the aliens uses to name themselves.
If the words are understandable but the grammar rules are not, then it's a Strange-Syntax Speaker. See Eternal English for the time travel equivalent. Occasionally justified by a Common Tongue. Compare Anime Accent Absence for when the Japanese forget to put accents on their foreign characters.
Rei can say just a few words, and Lum forgets Japanese for an episode after getting hit by a baseball. Benten, Oyuki, Ran, Elle, the taxi driver All those aliens in To Love-Ru seem to have their Japanese down just fine. Although apparently it did take some time for Lala to learn the written language.
Intergalactic demons from Dragon Ball Z seem to speak impeccable Japanese or whatever the language of the version you're watchingalthough at times, various aliens speak their native tongue, such as Frieza, though it makes you wonder why they choose to speak the earthlings' language in the first place.
The Namekians also have their own native language, as one of the village elders speaks it to try and confuse Frieza, although Frieza is well aware of the fact that he can speak Japanese. Also, the Namekian dragon can only be released by a password spoken in Namekian and wishes can only be made in the Namekian language.
This is made more confusing by the fact that the Dragon itself speaks normal Japanese.
The English dub mentions a "Universal Language", but this isn't in the Japanese version. Fan theories have it that the scouters used by most of the alien species in Frieza's employ also double as translator devices though this would fail to account why Frieza can speak to someone like Krillin, who doesn't wear a scouter, and be understood.
Dragon Ball Z Abridged plays with this just like everything else, stating that English is the universal language. They also fix the issue with Porunga by having him speak only Namekian which sounds suspiciously like Klingonthough he is later taught English to make granting wishes more convenient for the heroes.
Tony somehow speaks better English than anglo countries do! Which perhaps is more of positive reflection upon Tony's actor compared to the rest of them, than it is a negative one upon the characters themselves.From letter tracing and connect-the-dots activities to identifying letters in nursery rhymes and coloring pages galore, these worksheets will instill reading and writing fundamentals and prepare kids for the exciting educational journey that lies ahead.
