    How easy is it to learn your language? How about other languages you have tried? I learnt German which is easy as it's close to English, un petite peu Francais for travelling and Japanese which I also taught & is a hard language. Louise Smith

    Translation is no easy task, though in some cases is dreadfully impossible!
    How would anyone translate Poglish into eg Italian or Japanese??

    Basque native funny journalist gives Spanish lessons in Donostia-San Sebastián, European Capital of Culture 2016

    I love Ireland and I improved my English there. Irish people are so nice and friendly that they say an unknown person is a friend you still don't know.

    Let me show you unknown Donostia as well. We'll play, sing and have fun while learning Spanish and a little Euskera (Basque lenguage).

    First lesson for free. Personal and individual. Lot of humour. You'll learn also slang.

    It's easy to find me. Dare!

    #2 This is another thing, can you write or speak the language, can you do both? Both are different skill sets. I would say if you are looking to have as big an audience as possible, if you have a translated copy of something really good submit it. You know things that are unpopular in one country become popular in another. You never know what your market is looking for. For me i can understand Thai, but i sure as hell can't write in it or read it, Spanish.i can read and speak enough. I want to learn french, but yeah if you can write in other languages, because every language is a different audience.

    Interesting views never really thought about this in those terms I speak English (on good days) French (on bad days) and get by in Spanish, 225 millions roughly live and work in a country different from their country of birth for most of us it does imply that we have to function in a different language. So I guess adaptation is key but you are left with no choice you learn fast :-)

    The song I'm sharing, "Almendra" has special sentimental value because when I was a little girl, I used to dance with my father to this song. You know: like many 3-4 year-old girls do, putting their feet on their father's feet while they danced around. This always brings a smile. I hope you enjoy. Close
