^0^ Michigan gets a Language Grant - Detroit Free Press Article

A coworker had a funny comment about the language grant article.
"languages Bush wants Americans to learn include Mandarin Chinese, Farsi and Hindi
I'll learn Chinese Farsi and Hindi when Bush learns to speak English
Deal or no deal? "


I think for a language program to get off the ground, it will need more then a grant. There needs to be something to keep people engaged in a language - Are there any Arabic versions of Johnny's Jr? *laugh*

Those are great pictures. Any idea where the first was taken? That's such a wonderful view of the city.

Tell me about it. I'm obsessed with languages. I don't understand why Americans only want to speak English. Oh well.
