All the cool kids are doing it...

Brad Pitt, on learning French:

“All our kids are speaking French, so now we have that second language infused into our home. Everyone is learning another language. I’ve got the Rosetta Stone for French sitting right on the table in the bedroom, and it’s going to be loaded into my brain. I know there are certain synapses in my brain that just freeze dead at French, but I have to learn it because our kids are speaking it. Even the twins as babies were saying certain things in French.”

Yeah, 5 out of 6 of my godchildren (I know it's an excessive amount - 2 sets of twins!) are French speakers and there's going to be a time when they start talking back and I won't understand them! My best friend is French and I still can't get my head around it. Foreign languages and maths, my brain can't fathom them...
