I spoke with a Dutch woman about language learning. She’d lived and worked in Japan for 20 years, learning Japanese before learning English. She’d been thrown into it and for 3 months had struggled. Yet she feels that this is the way to go. However, I can’t help thinking that she seemed anxious. Her rather negative disposition made me doubt the sink or swim approach.
In the evening, I completed the Suske en Wiske story I’d started. It had a rather gruesome scene of a werewolf attacking and getting its claw chopped off. It later reverted into a human hand.
