Re: How do YOU measure if your language skills are improving?

Here in the Neuchatel Jura, the local jokes where always about this poor guy called Ouin-Ouin- so-called because he talks with a bloked nose. Poor chap was not too bright. My dad used to tell those very innocent jokes so well, I can hear him now (he died 3 years ago aged 96). Here is one example.

En plein hiver, Ouin-Ouin gèle sur le Pold (la rue Principale de la Chaux-de-Fonds) et il passe devant l'Armée du Salut. Il décide de rentrer pour se réchauffer et s'assied tout au fond de la salle. Une femme est sur le podium et parle de sa vie passée. Elle explique:

Hier j'étais à Satan, mais aujourd'hui, je suis à Jésus...

Ouin-Ouin lui crie 'et demain, t'es libre?.

Innocent days
