Learning another language is interesting on so many levels as you probably know.
One thing that keeps coming up for me is what happens when the correct word in the correct language does not come readily to mind. I don’t go blank as one might expect. I end up reverting to the last language I studied–kind of a default mode I suppose.
So when I was studying French in College, I naturally defaulted to English. That makes sense.
And in Grad school when I was learning Hebrew, my default became French. That was a bit surprising.
And would you believe it–now as I wade into the shallows of Spanish vocabulary and make chart upon chart of Spanish verb conjugations, Hebrew is popping up all over the place.
*The perfect expression for puzzlement and frustration in any land*
Keep learning, my Darlings!
