One of our readers recently asked if Mr. Handsome and I speak any languages aside from English. While we are not fluent in any other languages, we did study foreign languages in school.
In junior high, I took a semester of Spanish, followed by six-and-a-half years of French. I also took a Spanish class during the summer in early elementary school, but while I have very vivid memories of what the classroom and campus looked like, I didn’t learn much. It was at an old private school that people claimed was haunted, so I suppose that was more interesting to the students than what was being taught.
Mr. Handsome studied Spanish in junior high and high school. Even though we both spent a significant portion of our school years learning languages, we have forgotten quite a bit. My knowledge of French was helpful on our trip to Quebec in 2018, but I certainly would not feel comfortable in a group of sole French speakers. Mr. Handsome feels the same way about Spanish.
During my homeschool years (my junior and senior years of high school), I took one year of German as an elective.
What languages do you speak?
