when the Spanish think you are German, the Germans think you are Spanish, the Brits aren't sure whether you actually understand when they speak English to you ....

When you consider a career in diplomacy, as it would mean using languages as part of your job, but reconsider
when you remember that there's the possibility that you could be posted in an anglophone country.

When you think the most fascinating site in Paris is the two floors of the language bookshop Gibert Jeune. Forget the tourist crammed into the nearby Shakespeare and Co. This place is a magical store crammed floor to ceiling with every Assimil, and millions of other courses as well.

Where is that sacred place,DaraghM??? I haven't found it last time I was in Paris,
noone told
me it existed!!! All the book guides, people guides and everything mentiones every ...
but not such a wonderful place! A solid bookstore where you can even touch and leaf
through the Assimil before buying...

My own new findings:

1...when you automatically want to say grazie as the berliner waiter brings you the
pizza. :-)

2.When you have hard time deciding whether to buy Deutsch-Spanish Lernwortschatz or
Deutsch-Franzözisch version. I chose the Spanish one because hadn't had a similar book
for Spanish till the moment.

It's right in the heart of Paris at Place Saint-Michel. The name of the particular store is 'Langues et Lettres'. You can see it on their map here. I've just realised they also sell online. Now I'm in trouble.
