hunted (definition: Being the subject of a hunt.) or haunted? (definition: Of a location, frequented by a ghost or ghosts.)

Lol - and here I am, reading In the Unlikely Event, in which kids do come to believe airplane crashes may be targeting their school.

I guess French isn't one of your first two, or else mine is impossible to understand. I said (or tried to) that I'm impressed you're learning a third, I couldn't properly learn a second. It takes a different kind of learning mind than mine to pick up new languages.

>9 Cecrow: A friend once told me that they get easier after the first five or six. She and her husband had different mother tongues, and could (of course) speak both as well as, their national language, Kiswahili. School had been in English, where she also learned French. Her husband had degrees from Oxford and Sorbonne, and she was aware that his English and French were better than hers, but they were both fluent. This came up because she wanted help for some special shopping, so I went along. Her German was not fluent. But it worked, and she got everything for her Christmas dinner without me translating.

I think a lot of it is mindset. And it helps if both sides really want to communicate. But it takes a lot of practice.

I speak English and German. I can communicate in French, or at least could twenty years ago when we lived in Geneva. I have taken classes in Latin, Spanish, Greek, Hebrew (those two biblical). Thus far I have enough to occasionally be useful, and Russian. That one bombed. I can say "It's snowing." and "I am an American spy." Not useful. I also have snippets of Marathi and Tamil. But they also are not useful.
