Now We Know Why Americans Are Linguistically Challenged
I've been working on Italian for the past few years, off and on. Although my best (and only marginally useful) sentence is "Dov'e il ufficio postale?" (Where is the post office?), I'm currently in "on" mode due to the BBC's Italian Steps page. The BBC also has French, German, Spanish, Mandarin, Portugese and Greek. If only PBS had the same sort of thing. No wonder so few Amerians are multi-lingual.
