Language teachers

I have, in the past, made abortive attempts to learn other languages. I even tried Welsh, which was brave because a mispronounciation can cause you to swallow your tongue. I think it's the only language where grammatical mistakes can be fatal.

Language classes are usually dull. Make them more like this, I say!

Something tells me you have to be European to understand that.

That was a language lesson? Hm. From here it looked more like some sort of drunken relay race.

SW- it's worse. You have to be in the UK, and you have to have visited the little bit that sticks out towards Ireland, just over halfway down.

Thats where the Welsh live and they really are as mad as that!

Dr. B - never attempt to pshychoanalyse the Welsh. They are off the scale.

An entertaining place to visit, but tiring.
