languages

how many languages do you and becky speak? you've traveled basically all around the world, so you must know a few.

Ich Spreche Englisch mostly

Well, I'm a little bit ashamed to admit that I pretty much only know English. I always learn a little bit of the language of the countries we are traveling in (as everyone should even when the people in that country likely also know English), but this is just basic gettting around and ordering food kind of stuff. I regret not studying more languages when I had the opportunity to do so in school.

But, as Becky is proving to me, you can go back to school and learn if you are really motivated. She has been taking Chinese classes for the last 6 months or so and she's learning a lot! She's still a novice, but she has taught me enough for us to get the gang around China. In that video I ordered in Chinese and said thank you when I got my food.

 

Kiweenie has taken an interest in Chinese too, and he and Becky are going to be giving a Chinese lesson in his class this Friday.

How about you? Do you know any other languages? Are there any you want to learn?

Me too

I know a little Italian because I went to Rome for spring break, and I can say hello in around 7 different languages. I will be taking German in 6th grade though, which I'm pretty excited about.

Strange and Bizarre

So, what was the strangest food that you tried? Was there anything that you tasted that was really bad?

Oh, oh, and was there anything that you were hoping to eat but then found out that it was really Chinese food, it was Chinese food that was created in America?

What's in those dumplings?

Well, the weirdest thing we've eaten were dumplings that tasted pretty normal, and kind of good, and we thought were just regular dumplings. As we left the restaurant we saw the only English sign and it informed us that we just ate dumplings made out of the bits of crab that that you would certainly not talk about in polite company. We were a little shocked and then pretty amazed that there was such a strange thing to specialize in cooking.

 

I haven't had anything that I thought was just plain bad. Some of the candy is pretty...um...unique.
