If you could wake up tomorrow and be fluent in any language you don’t currently speak, which would it be? Why? What’s the first thing you do with your new linguistic skills?
I would love to be able to snap my fingers and speak German fluently, there is something so sexy and commandeering about German the language has always had an appeal for me. Is it because the descriptives that the German language brings to my mind are so different than how I see myself and that perhaps speaking German fluently would allow me to access those traits every once in a while; I don’t know. There is just something about hearing German that makes my ears wake up and my mind strain to understand. I also adore the complexity of the words, often the more complicated the word, the simpler the definition. Here are two examples:
glücklich, fröhlich is happy
Flugafen is airport
I love those words!
