Next there will be people speaking Finnish and Welsh.

I have the Back Road Atlas. I just need a larger map to get the big picture. I think the Gander VNC (aerial visual navigation chart) will do the trick. Rich, are you placing any chart orders?

Hey, if only I could! I'm half Finn and my father was first generation American; bilingual of course. To this day I regret he never taught us kids the Finnish language.

Ok, we've got Basque, a little Suomi, most of the Slavic languages, some rusty German and a little French, We should be able to buy some cheese in one of the most Anglophone provinces in Canada. If they don't understand what you're saying, just talk louder.

I have a little German...

My Dad was there right after WWII ended. He taught me this but I'm unsure of its usage:

Zwanzig Mark für fünf Minuten

And nar (neither) one of those languages will help. We speak English and have bastardized the French to our liking but the truth is the speed and lack of distinction is more the issue. I am not a techie but there is an "App" available that will only start to help.
Evilclown was telling me himself and SCS were eating breakfast in the Springdale area next to a group of men and had absolutely no idea what the conversation was about. I gave them language lessons over morning coffee but the truth being i speak "townie" and the rest of the island has very distinctive dialects that are based upon which region the "baymen" are from.
