Mind my language? I only wish that I had, mes amis

Opinion piece by Tim Hames

I like to think of myself as an educated person. Yet the brutal truth is that by the standard that has prevailed for about 1,500 years I’m not. This might strike regular readers of this column as a statement of the obvious, but for me it is a matter of embarrassment. I am intellectually incomplete because I cannot speak, let alone master, a foreign language.
