I have always loved learning languages. My mother wanted to be Jewish, so my bedtime stories were from "The Education of H*Y*M*A*N K*A*P*L*A*N". . She also taught me the German she learned as a reporter at the Four Power Conferences in Berlin before the airlift. I work at other languages for fun, and happened upon Frantastique while I was immobilized with sciatica, and tired of staring at the ceiling. It has helped keep me my normally cheerful, slightly lunatic self. I look forward to it all day, and do my lesson before bed, Great fun! Who knew?— Katherine O. (Woodstock, UNITED STATES)
