Ah yes, speaking only one language. Your pal Dave must be refering to us in the US. Not only do must of us only speak English, we're bloody arrogant about it too, and say things like, "Why should I learn to speak another language. Everyone else should just learn to speak English."

Nothing impresses me more than a Native English speaker that speaks another language as well... You could be telling me that I need to wax my monobrow (don't really have one, just for making my point) and as long as you're telling me in something other than english, you're my new boyfriend and we're in love.

My Hubby is bi, lingual that is, English and Spanish. I Like it A LOT

I thought you guys spoke "American", not "English". ;)

Connie said...

ooooh, good one Karen!

Hey Lisa... I can speak a little Canadian French. My Girlfriend is a also a real frog, who actually lived in France as a child... she's the real deal as far as being bi, lingual that is.... Can we be your new girlfriends?

I should write a bot that visits the Chimp's spot, realises it's a Dave post and comments a "Fuck off Dave" automatically.

Now, where did I put my PHP book?

On the bi (lingual that is) theme, I tried to have an IM conversation in French last night. I failed. Now had I drunk a bottle of finest red and been talking rather than typing, I'm sure it would all have come back to me.

Andy, you're a man after my own heart. Trying to speak other languages is my specialty when I've had too much to drink. I'm always trying to brige those gaps you know.

Connie, baby, anything you want. Perhaphs you'd wanna speak to your live-in first?

I speak sort of English, and no other language. Although I understand a bit of Italian and was very good at French at school - but that was nearly 20 years ago and i've forgotten most of it.

I used to love speaking French. Alas, I can still understand, read it, but most spoken French is nearly gone.
