I do still have my Swedish grammar book and matching Swedish-English and English-Swedish dictionaries, plus two fiction books (one adolescent-level, one teen-level) in Swedish. I wouldn't do well in regular conversation, but I remember the pronunciation just well enough to not embarrass myself when ordering off a Swedish menu.


Tee hee, I am Swedish, so bilingual. I have some German books left from high school, but other than that, it's English all the way.


As a matter of fact I do have a few foreign language books. My major was French, so I have the usual classic lit--Candide, Le Rouge et le Noir. I have a few contemporary novels that people have given me--The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice (the only one I can think of without actually having to go look). I can still read them. I taught HS French for five years and then started teaching English at another school. French, however, will always be my favorite.


I guess you can say I'm bilingual, since English isn't my first language. I'd love to study Latin. I don't think there's a lot of people nowadays who can speak it. :D
