Globalisation



One of the things I have been pulling my hair out about since I came to Japan is whether G. will grow up speaking English or Japanese or both.

Yesterday, he decided to start speaking Spanish!

His cousin K-chan - who has just come over to Japan after spending the early part of his life in Mexico - had been using "darme, darme" (which I understand to mean "give me, give me") to get stuff. So, needs must, G. adopted the local vernacular.

Which just goes to prove the incredible adaptability of the human child in matters of importance!
