It’s always been fun to play with the language. Rather than being a drudge, English can be fascinating. It is to me.

One of the applicants was Eva, an Austrian-born woman who spoke English, Spanish, German and French. She’d been my student in several journalism courses, and naturally, I recommended her. I told the group that Eva was a polyglot.
