This week Brenda Margriet wants to know – Do you speak another language? If so, which one? If you don’t, is there a language you’d like to learn? How about your characters – do you write characters that speak different languages, and use that language in your stories?
I speak English quite well. LOL
I also speak Spanish, not great but enough to get by.
I lived in The Netherlands for seven months so I speak some Dutch, also not well, but enough to get by.
I have written some characters who speak French and Italian. I do the research and then have someone who speaks those languages check it for me before it goes out into the world. I never write too much in languages other than English. Just a phrase here and there. I don’t want my lovely readers to have to work too hard.
Keep on hopping for Leslie Hachtel
