I speak Swedish. I learned it in the 1994 to 96 era. I think to have a conversation with a native is a great accomplishment. Well done, Gill.

I am losing much of my Swedish, but we're possible, I watch Swedish movies. Besides, I love the depth in their movies.

By the way, I recommend My Life as a Courgette. Its a great French Children's movie. There is a great line when the child tells the psychologist, "my mother drinks a lot of beer, but she makes good mashed potatoes."

There is a sweetness but sadness in the statement.
