  •  I was riding a bus home when about 4-5 young men (2+ / 0-)

    got in, in suits.  They began speaking fluently in another language. I didn't recognize the language. But what I noticed is that although they were completely fluent, they sounded totally American -- all the words and inflections sounded like American English even though they were speaking a different language.
    Took me a little while to realize they were Mormon young men coming back from a mission (we live less than a mile from the Mormon Temple in a suburb of Washington D.C. and the bus stops there).
    This was many many years ago, probably about when Romney would have been doing his mission. My guess is that they were not taught by native speakers.
