hehehe...your stories remind me of my own when i was learning both english and arabic. It is been so long though that i've forgotten them, but now you are bringing all those memories of those good o'days :)
I am not fluent in my original language as i am fluent in english and arabic. I dont know how to write or read it, it was my parents mother tongue and that's the only language they speak, i am originally from somalia, so we speak Somalian. We left the country when i was 4 so i speak it with an accent. My fiance is dutch so i must learn his language too as he is already good with English. I can understand some french too. So my plan was to learn both Dutch and Tukish at the same time, but that's seeming impossible at the moment. I am a full time PT aid and pre-dental student.
