I feel like throwing a party.
I just opened up my Arabic kids' fairytale book that Aura-lee gave me last year, and I could actually generally make out what was happening in the first sentence.
The funny part is noting the associations that I have with particular words (e.g., I can remember where I learned them and what was happening). I guess this doesn't happen so much with the language that you learn as a kid . . . maybe because it all gets mushed together in your brain with the zillion and one other things you are already learning?
It would be super fun to study language acquisition. Someday . . .
