As usual, my latest book, The Winner by David Baldacci, has the odd reference to language learning. One of them was especially relevant for me. It’s when someone is described:
He craved information, absorbed it like a three-year-old learning a foreign language. He only needed to hear it once and he never forgot it.
I read this passage whilst walk/jogging laps at the Caledonian running track. I do 12 laps in lane 3, thus 5000 metres. I run for part of the lap (100 metres at this stage) and walk the rest, reading. I dog-ear multiple pages to keep track.
