This thought constantly ran through my head as the staff on the Eurostar were serving a meal and asking very simple questions. As they asked 'would you like some more coffee?' or 'any milk with that?' I had a very blank impression on my face. I visit France at least twice a year and I studied French for 10 years at school, so where is it all gone? Has it been replaced by human anatomy or pathology? Because its very tragic if it has….
Now I am making it a personal goal to interact more in French and not be an obnoxious tourist. It's in my brain somewhere, I just need to dig a little deeper.
