Life as a polyglot


06/04/2010 by etiennefish

My life ahora is a mixtura of the four langues that I utilise no dia-a-dia. English, Français, Español and Portugûes have començou to run ensemble en mi mente until I can no longer separate un ao outro. Je parle English y Español at my travaille, com un peu de Françes thrown in for good measure. In meu novo appartement, the official língua comun est le French, mais cuando my Brésilienne housemate nao está, we often hablamos in English avec un poco of espanhol, et, quand my French colocataire isn’t em casa, we speak Portugais. Juntos, porque my Francês is débil ainda, nous speak French avec a fuerte dosis of the other 3 como nécessaire. This ‘polyglotism’ é one de las cosas that j’adore about morando here. Of course, je souhaite that mi Francés était melhor, pero I think this will be el caso logo. Dans l’intervalle eu penso the mayoría de the time em portugûes et Inglés. In the dernière semaine, Portugûes was surpreendentemente the lengua dominante en my tête y sueños. Le seul inconvénient de this lifestyle is que I have a tendância to agregar mots from many línguas into une phrase, which confuses todo el mundo e il peut make it difícil me compreender si usted ne me connaissez pas. I even confuse moi-même ! Yo espero que I possa corrigir this problem rapidement !

      Haha, you’re more than welcome to reblog this if you like Raph! And go ahead and use the link if you want to. 🙂 This post was mostly the ramblings of my inner monologue while wishing desperately that I could fall asleep last night at oh, about 3am.
