When you dream in it...
I dream in French all the time, and even better I understand most of it now!

I realised I knew French pretty well when I started having to change seats on the train because of the inane conversation that I couldn't help following. (No, I do not feel the need to walk around to my own personal soundtrack to the B-movie that is my life blaring in my ears, so I actually hear people around me.)

Ahhh, I miss those days when everyone's babbling was incomprehensible and I could imagine that being in 'Europe, where culture has been flourishing for so many centuries,' people were having very interesting, insightful conversations and maybe, just maybe I would be able to understand one day and benefit from the ancient wisdom being shared all around me...
