Here in England, the vast majority of people only speak English. I think this is due to the fact that the former British Empire comprised 2/3 of the world, and people it was felt unnecessary to learn others' languages.<quoted text>
Hey Seraphine.:) Wow that kind of volunteer work sounds hard..especially around children. But I do commend you for doing it. Sorry about losing the little girl.:(. You and Sora are doing your part to make the world a better place, and I think more people should do that, including myself.
As far as the languages, yes I saw that you had said Sora was a linguist. I personally would like to learn Spanish. My nephews are 1/2 Mexican and fluent, so maybe I can practice with them.:) it seems like in places like Europe, where there are several countries close to each other, the people there seem to be at least bilingual, which I think is cool.
By the way you said you grew up in New Orleans.. I've been there and I loved it.:) Such a unique place.
However I have friends in Denmark, Finland and Sweden who speak 3 or more languages, which is pretty impressive.
