Want to see a video of an English language learner whose level of English is equivalent to my current level of Spanish? Click here.
Not exactly bilingual, eh? But still not too shabby considering I could only say “hola” a few months ago.
NYT’s columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote recently that he uses a simple one-word test to determine whether someone is truly proficient in a foreign language: he asks, “how do you say ‘doorknob’?”
Uh… not a clue.
Fortunately, I have a few more months of full-time language instruction left ahead of me.
