My language skills are really being put to the test here, and I must admit I feel bad that my French has deteriorated so much. I'm having to stretch my mind to remember the most basic of phrases. Shame on me!
It's made me think, I wonder if anyone else has a similar problem - multiple languages spoken in their school and needing to communicate with children in their native language. I could really do with some 'library phrases' in French, German and Chinese to help me along!
Anyone know of such a thing? If not, I may have to start compiling a phrase book myself!
