Parlez vous?

Booking Through Thursday

Here’s an idea from Julie:

I had an idea for a BTT question when I was taking a peek at one of my bookcases yesterday and spotted my old copy of the Aeneid in Latin sitting there. Maybe this question has already been done—but if not… Do you have any foreign language books and if so can you (still) read them?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  1. I don’t even need to bother with a blog entry for this one. No. No. Definitely no. (Unless you count Japanese knitting pattern books.) I think I’ve got a “learn to read Italian” primer around somewhere, but otherwise–not even a single dictionary leftover from French classes in school. Foreign languages, unfortunately, just aren’t my “thing.”

  2. I’m fond of looking at French and Japanese books, but I can’t really read them. Check out the rest of my answer here. Happy BTT!

  36. Hablo español solamente poco y no muy bien – I have one elementary Spanish book on the desk, but I haven’t gotten very far. All I remember of two years of high school Latin is amo, amas, amat.
