TWO FOR ONE SPECIAL!
As mentioned during the Great Theme Reveal, language holds a special fascination for me. There’s nothing like a well-placed, elegant word to attract attention. Even as a child, my vocabulary was extensive and people said I sounded like a miniature adult. I also grew up bilingual, German/English and was blessed with an ear for foreign tongues. At school in Switzerland, a Guatemalan housemate taught me some Spanish (most of it forgotten now), and French was a favourite subject. Italian came to me by way of Hubby, who immigrated to Canada from Italy in 1970, shortly before we met. We despised each other at first, which is kind of funny, considering our upcoming 42nd anniversary in Aug.
For a change of pace, I’m offering a verbal lesson in foreign languages today:
French/Français: Bonjour mes amis German/Deutsch: Guten Tag Freunde
Italian/Italiano: Buon giorno amici Spanish/Español: Buenos dias amigos
Greek/Elliniká [ελληνικά]: Kali̱méra fíloi [Καλημέρα φίλοι]
Do you speak any foreign languages? Which ones?
Is there one you would like to learn?
(I gave up on Greek, but would like to expand my knowledge of Italian and Spanish)
Looking forward to your comments!
