Illustration Friday - Alphabet

When I was 6 my parents enrolled me
in Greek school classes so twice a week after school I had to do another two hours of Greek school work ...we had to learn a whole new alphabet from alpha to omega...gosh I hated going but I guess it paid off as I now know how to speak, read and write Greek!
alpha beta gamma delta......

  5. This is lovely. Growing up with 2 languages is difficult (my kids will attest to that), but what an advantage.

  7. That's so impressive. Hey, I can sing the Greek alphabet. We did that in our sorority in college.

    Your post today made me smile. I too remember many afternoons spent in Greek school in sunny South Africa. I now live in another sunny place-San Diego. I've been reading and enjoying your blog for many months, drawn to it at first by its name. My youngest daughter is also an Anastasia:)

  10. My mother did the classics and so can read "ancient" Greek and also Latin, I tried Latin but it's so confusing! I can just about manage a little bit of pigeon-spanish, but that is it! Love the drawing (reminds me of me!).

  12. i wish learning more than one language was more important to americans. we usually take french or spanish, maybe german or italian in high school but overall the instruction is not great.
    you are lucky to speak greek!

  13. i am envious! i never learned to speak hindi and that has always been one of my regrets... took a class last year but it is HARD to learn as an adult!
