Am reasonably good with languages, i always make an effort. After a month in croatia/bosnia i had a (very) basic grasp of the language, i could order coffee, shop etc, same in turkey…but telugu has defeated me completely, I do not know a single word. People tell me a word or phrase, i repeat it, and thirty seconds later it has dissolved away never to return. It will not stick in my brain… and the text, such beautiful squiggly lines…am completely and utterly defeated.
