Benjamin Rush Could speak Latin, Greek, German, French and a little of Spanish and Italian.
I know I'm impressed. I'm not much good at different languages.
I was thinking the other day about all the things Benjamin Rush could say and no one would know what he was saying. Benjamin Rush was also a Dr. so that could have come in handy....
"Usted tiene una enfermedad incurable.""You have an incurable disease. "
"Ich habe keine Ahnung, was mit Ihnen falsch ist.""I have no idea what is wrong with you."
"C'est quelque chose que je n'ai avant jamais vue.""This is something I've never seen before."
"Il mio consiglio è di vivere come stavate morendo.""My advice is to live like you were dying."
"¡Espero esto no sea lo que pienso que es!""I hope this is not what I think it is!"
I had a little free time and see what came out of it!
Maybe next time I'll just read another book. Books are awesome! I just had to put that in there. I'm addicted to books but I'm a really slow reader so I'm still at the point were I can talk about a every book I liked/loved for weeks afterward. (Or mouths. Or years.)
If I read any more than I did I wouldn't be able to tell everyone about ever good book I read.
Anyway this is not what I started out talking about so I guess I should just stop.
Still I think I might learn some phrases in strange languages just so I can say things and then say 'Oh don't you know what that means? Well of course you don't it's in German.'
O.K. I need to go because this is silly.
