Another first for Surface Languages

Sounds impressive does it not, and it is.

Well, for the first time ever on Surface Languages, there is a guest post.

It is about learning Czech and how Chapman Woodriff (the author) learnt  Czech from scratch. You can read it  here and I recommend that you do.

It resonated particularly with me, as Czech and Polish have similar challenges, and I have not risen to the challenge with Polish. It made me think about what I did or have done differently with Spanish and Italian in comparison with Polish.

But that is for another day.

The other news is that I can no longer wipe my dogs paws, which is a problem on a day like today, when it is raining, and large paws like sponges soak up water.

If I wipe, or even look like will wipe his paws, he …

… empties the contents of his stomach.  Yes, he yaks up.

It is a very, very effective way of not having your paws cleaned.

They don’t mention this sort of thing in dog training classes. Full of people whose lives are oh so perfect, and dogs oh so neat and perfectly groomed. Grrr.

Besos, baci, and the rest.
