Me, myself and I

It's just not that simple.

Anyone of you a human dictionary?
Right now, I'm doing the PR of our department. That means basically scanning the published articles about the institute of the last two years, find out what they are all about, find the respective scientists and the name of the study.
Should be easy - that's what I thought.
I had no idea, that they expect me to speak all European languages fluently.
The easiest was Dutch - probably because if you know how to pronounce it, it's pretty similar to German.
But I've spent the last hour or so, reading two pages of an article in French, trying to figure what they were trying to tell me. And I have no clue. It's something about dogs and apes and pointing and... well, that's all I know ;)
Did I mention that I was a French major in high school? Embarassing, huh?
Oh, and there's another article in Greek (you know, with all the greek letters so that you can't google the crap) ... any takers? :D

I did study four years of French, but I hardly remember any of it!

See, this is the beauty of internet friends - Lara speaks French and Anna speaks Greek. Of course, they may not be available to help, but at least you know somebody! Just think what you'd do if you never joined FoLC-dom. :)

Lol, Lisa, that's so true. I was actually like "Great, could someone please give me Lara and Anna..."
And I could have asked Saskia if had been stuck with my poor Dutch ;)

Yeah - FoLCs are the best :)

But good to know that there's not too much left of your French either...
