    She works English/French, French/English.
    Another brother speaks 5 or 6 languages including Arabic, & another one speaks 4.
    Both of those brothers spent 30 years, mostly in Africa, one in the private sector & the other one in the public sector, finally as consul to the Canadian Mission to the UN & was based in the United Nations building in New York.

    So no,I didn`t get my feelings hurt.
    I`m glad you did remember though.

    I`m already against the next war.

      and I feel quite privileged to earn money doing something I love. The talent runs in the family, my father's side. He spoke numerous languages, was quite brilliant in many of them, and taught Russian and German. Later he learned Burmese courtesy of a government institution that shall not be named. Alas, I am only proficient in German and English, and was in French at one time, but that is very rusty now. I'm tempted to move to France just to get it back up to speed for fun! It's just across the border, so not such a pipe dream. Anyhow, better stop this threadjacking, even if the diary is pretty dead by now. I'm sure we'll cross paths again eventually.
