I speak French. But I struggle sometimes, it's been so long since I've left French immersion.

So, if I put you and Aimee in a room together, you can relive the glory days of French immersion school! :D I do wish we had the option of immersion schools here--I spoke with a woman whose children are in a Sapanish-immersion school in the big city, and I was sooooo jealous. Very cool, and I appreciate your willingness to help.

My husband is a Spanish and French teacher. He's fluent in Spanish but conversational in French. He'd help out if he needed to.

Thanks, Valerie! I may forward this on to Kimber, who's been looking for someone to translate information from the site into Spanish. I believe she found someone, but along with French, it's an area of growing need. I was ready to ask the Spanish teacher at my school--great resource!

Thank you! We've had a couple ladies go through HG in Japan, and the attitude toward the illness is really quite different than any Western approach. Very interesting!

Very eclectic mix, Sara! :D You know we get some Scandinavians looking for information, and every now and again there's a visitor from a Hebrew-speaking area.

I'm Mexican, not to mention that I'm going to school to be a Certified Court/Medical Translator! So, count me in for Spanish/English...I can read, write and talk perfectly!

Cuenten conmigo! :D

Wonderful, Liz! We're getting more and more interest from Spanish-speaking women, and our ability to translate our materials into Spanish and to return contact has been limited. I will keep you in mind next time such a situation arises. Thanks!

A third Norwegian speaker here, and like Irene I can understand and read/write Swedish and Danish too. My partner is Welsh, not the most used language in the world but still available if needed :wink:

Thank you, Trude. We're seeing more and more Scandinavian HGers every year. And I will most certainly call on you and your partner should we be beseiged by Welsh HGers... :lol: Quite an eclectic mix in your household!

Swedish here too. I can read Swedish and speak it but my husband will have to help me conjugate the verbs to write back. It isn't a problem though he is only here in the US for 4 years and speaks only Swedish to our DD.

I'm late deafened but have a pretty good grasp on ASL in the event we ever get another deaf mom. Aside from language we face a host of other issues when trying to get medical care and bridge that communication gap that seems to frequently exist in the medical community.
