Learning Engrish

I may have said this here before, but if I can't remember, you can't either so I'll tell you again: Izumi is busy learning English. She's three and a half so she's already been talking for quite some time. But a large majority of her talk was in Japanese until right after Misaki was born in April. My parents came to visit, and I'm convinced that threw some kind of switch in her brain. Within the span of a few days, it seemed like she was all English, all the time.

English is a difficult language. If you need confirmation, or just amusement, please look here. I don't need to go further than my living room to be reminded that English is a challenge. For example, just today, I distinctly heard Izumi say to Misaki,

"Misaki, you are a good job, don't you?"

oh brother! This really makes me laugh. I am also thinking of how I try so hard to speak Spanish at the Vineyard clothes closet, but I definitely speak sparish.....
