My ABC Wednesday is German, my mother language. And I know a very hard language to learn if you don't learn it from the cradle.
Some quotes from Mark Twain from "A Tramp Abroad, Appendix D, The Awful German Language"
•"Some German words are so long that they have a perspective."
• "I went often to look at the collection of curiosities in Heidelberg Castle, and one day I surprised the keeper of it with my German. I spoke entirely in that language. He was greatly interested; and after I had talked a while he said my German was very rare, possibly a »unique«; and wanted to add it to his museum."
Sometimes I try to imagine how would it be to have English as my first language. Or better be bilingual.
What do you think about? Do you speak another language? And is there any need for?
