4. I know what you mean about wanting to be at least
bi-lingual. It is too bad about not learning Finnish when you were a wee one. It would be so easy at that stage of life.
When I lived in San Diego and started to learn Espanol after the age of 40 and I was so proud of it! When I moved to Colorado, Kaua'i, New York and back again to Kaua'i.. I lost much of what I had learned. Now, I'm practicing again with this Latino kid who just moved here from San Diego!
"Culture is important. Whether it be Suomi or a Native American tribe. And the languages are part of that culture."
I agree.. my main culture is Scotch-Irish with 1/32 Ojibwe.
1/2 Viking! Yes, I now understand your handle So what kind of food does your culture favor in America?
