Why thank you. I was lucky because I grew up listening to my parents both speak Urdu/Hindi (basically the same thing) and Punjabi. Due to this it was very easy for me to learn Spanish in high school, and then French is a lot easier because of my Spanish background. I'm currently learning Quranic Arabic, so it would be too helpful if I visit an Arabic speaking country, but maybe one day I will learn conversational Arabic too as it has given so many words to Urdu.

Yes, the sun is gone, but hey, there's no snow!

I see you work at the U of M. How do you like it? My brother was a Philosophy/Physiology student there seven or so years ago. :)
