You might be surprised that this blog is in English, given that my mother tongue is German, I live in Spain, though in the Catalan-speaking part, speak Portuguese with my best friend and came here working for a French company. So why English? The truth is, I have deliberated a lot over this question.
German is my mother tongue, but speaking it only with my mom and my kids I sometimes search for words longer than it takes me to write an entire post.
French and Italian by now are passive languages – I understand conversations, enjoy their food and their literature, but I struggle writing fluently.
Meanwhile, English is my professional language – both for work and education. Plus, I do have some non-Spanish speaking peeps out there that would love a quick sound byte from time to time… so this if for you 🙂
