I also want to express my respect for all Orchidians who have
English as a second (or third!) language. It is amazing to realize
that these people are so articulate in more than one language
However, it’s not always easy since expressions sometimes take a
complete other direction in deffernt languages. I still enjoy the
exchange of knowledge even having a hard time finding the specific
words. Ganoksin in matter of fact has only one language and it’s not
english or american,it’s the “jewelry language”!
Judy in Kansas, who thinks she should really make an effort to
learn another language - they say that keeping the brain active as
one ages is a good thing!"
I’m familiar with four languages being a kind of belgian citizen.
Most of the time I still feel myself stupid when I compare my
knowledge in this branche with other persons -) Give it a try Judy by
learning “flemisch” which is close to dutch, I’ll give you free
In all honnesty, this is a truly remarkable platform where very well
educated people join their knowledge with sometimes complete newbies
and never asking anything in return. Tank you all for being a part
of this memberschip !
Have fun and enjoy,
