Something Something

Tr:  Mashehu mashehu

It's the last night of Hanukah.  We had a wonderful dinner at Koby's parents house with Koby, Judy, and our cool landpeople this very night.  The food was extremely excellent and the conversation was delightful.  These people over here are pretty darned nice, my friends.  I'm admiring the élan I see all around me here and I'm especially admiring and envying the bilingualism.
My goal in life is to be bilingual or trilingual asap.  This whole country is full of bilinguals.  I blame my country for not providing me with bilingualism. What, I get gypped out of bilingualism because I live in a country without comprehensive second language education?   I really feel my country owes me another language or two.  Listen My Country, fork over the languages, STAT.

I took Latin in college. Latin! What has it ever done for me? Well. I learned some cool stuff, but I can't speak a lick of anything except English. Thanks a lot, college!

I'm going to study Mandarin this summer, I decided. With Rosetta Stone on my home computer.

I too have been deprived of bilingualism by my country and am upset about it so I will spend January in France going to school to learn French, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day for 4 weeks. I hope it works.
Thanks for your blog. I love your one sentence stories and hearing about your adventure.

KC, I've heard Rosetta Stone's not the best. I think Mitzi uses a program called Pimsler???? I can ask.

Unabashed, This is the most exciting news. I hope you'll blog your trip. Thanks for your kind words about leeway. Really appreciate it!
