Just got off the phone with my German teacher. She’s back from her summer language-learning holiday in the Czech Republic.
I asked her to stay two hours a week with me for the next few weeks before she leaves to France for six months. Now she wants to learn French. I never met someone so interested in languages. Besides her mother language, she speaks Czech, very good English, and excellent Spanish, with a slight Venezuelan accent. Instead of learning just a little bit of each language, she really goes all the way to mastering each one.
One would wonder what she studied in college. Well, she is still studing Germanistic at Regensburg University, which means she is learning “every nook and cranny” of her language and those similar to it.
I wonder what I’ll do when she’s gone…
