At high school, I was a great student. I could even have become dux, but French and Latin let me down. They ought not to have. I was very interested in the latter. I had Dutch under my belt, so French should have been a cinch too. I can only surmise that the approach was wrong.
With the right approach and the right mindset, I would have picked up any number of languages, effortlessly, by now. Still, it’s never too late for an old dog!
I have a pen. I have a apple. Uh! Apple-Pen! (Not to mention the pineapple.)
