130

Daily, I run into people interested in languages:
  • a Dutchman who feels he ought to learn Maori 
  • an academic who picked up Spanish in Argentina on an exchange 
  • a Philippines administrator wishing to learn Japanese 
  • a Polytechnic staff member who had to go to the university to do a little of that same language 
  • a Jordanian woman who learned English at the age of nine through reading a series of books for girls. 
  • my own sister-in-law needing to pick up Dutch for her new overseas position 
  • a new friend, a translator, who has traveled the world
It’s a hot topic!
