I'm pretty sure Dizrael said he's also learning Russian and looking for someone to practice with, but I'm really rusty and most of that is pretty
basic (only reason I MIGHT be right)...LOL
If Russian proves too hard for me (which it very well might!) I will give Chinese a whirl.
When I was younger, my big dream was to work with the CIA and be an American James Bond.
Turns out, this is NOT how intel works, hehe...but still, I was in a student trainee program.
Long story short....1) My Russian class, though taught by a CIA language instructor, was full of folks fresh from Slavic nations, so the 3 of us in
the program were quickly outpaced, even though I'm an A student. 2) Weren't enough folks interested in our Chinese Politics class, so that got
cancelled. Then 3) the coup in Russia pretty much meant the end of our specific program. (well, took two weeks after)
Suffice to say, my dreams were pretty much smashed that day, so went on to different things. The coup pretty much dates it, and tells you how long ago
this was, hehe...
Really, it all worked out. I'd probably be a bored analyst in Langley or somewhere, or maybe even a fat Case Officer in some sweltering Middle Eastern
nation if I had stuck on that path....
