Three things

Holly has been learning German for three weeks.

Today in German her teacher set up role plays in which one person asked the other where they were from and the other had to say they were from a country that the teacher had named. THe teacher told Holly that she (Holly) was from France.

Girl: Wo wohst du?
Holly: J'habite en France

Teacher: (apoplectic) Was? Vat ist dis? Dis ist ein German lesson, nicht ein French lesson!
Holly: But you said I was from France.

(how I laughed when Holly told me this) Holly can't help it if she's too clever for her own good.

Your German accent comes across very well - sounds just like Uta!
Ooops, better be careful, I think she reads your blog sometimes!!

hahaha.... Floss is having trouble in her english classes, she has a teacher who clearly doesn't like having a real english in her class, told her to put her hand down as she couldn't possibly know what Marmnite was !!! hello ??? problem is unless Floss says so know one thinks she is english because she has no accent any more when she speaks french !!

Tat - Squiff also has lost his English accent but everyone knows he is English - his teacher asked him (and me) to help her with her lessons!

Sorry about this RW, but here on Tat's computer, one can not comment on Lettuce's blog, so I'm doing it here...

Thanks Trac!

Btw Tat - all the links to you I've tried so far lead to Le Chat's blog.


Is your problem commenting on mine maybe a browser problem? Which browser are you using?

Oh, Hi Luce!!!

Hi Lettuce, I can! Sheesh, it must be a problem with those pesky pc users hehehe!

Oh hello Luce I did actually come here to talk to you ;-)

Are we on for the 9th November then? I am going to stay with my friend Amanda for a long weekend now so I am really looking forward to it.

ptb. Don't think it can be a pc problem. More likely to be browsers?

oh, hi Luce!


About time for a new post though?

Hey, who are you calling "pesky", Dons?

I remember the person who used to use the word "pesky" a lot was Deperate Dan in the Beano, or was it the Dandy?
