The Cleaning Woman

Today, I met a cleaning woman that speaks 5 languages! Enlgish, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. What a world we live in.

She's probably not very fluent in Italian and French. Still thats pretty good.

As in impressed..its like the guys in khan el khalili, theyr incredibly fast learners..some of them even illiterate or use the grammar all wrong but surprises u how they manage to convey their msg;) egyptian fahlawa.
must admit though,she must be gifted.Once shes past english french and spanish or portuguese the rest comes naturally since the latin and hermanica origin languages are always similar in terms of vocabulary and grammar.french and spanish helped me alot in italian but german was a killer besara7a!welad..

Sorry to be sceptical, but how many of these languages have you actually tested?

That is pretty impressive. Some people just have a talent for learning languages. My cleaning lady only speaks Spanish. I know enought Spanish to converse with her, but I'm far from fluent. She thiks I'm fluent though, so many times when she talks I just stand there and look dumb.

Take care
