Xenoglossia


I still retain some school girl French. I was very good at Latin for the first year and got 100% in the end of year exam. It got more difficult after that and in the next exam my mark was in single figures. I often think about learning another language but don’t do anything about it. The perfect way would be to wake one morning with the condition known as Xenoglossia. What a dream that would be. No hard work involved. No classes. No declining verbs. Just to open my eyes and have xenoglossia which means I could speak a foreign language with no prior learning. It might even be a language I had never heard before.
