A funny thing happened to me when I was on the bus the other day. My ears pricked up when I caught the thread of the conversation behind me, something that often happens whenever I'm in earshot of people speaking English. Then all of a sudden I realized that they weren't speaking English at all; it was French and I knew exactly what they were saying. Whoa. I'm still a long way from fluent but clearly I'm making progress.
