Is English The Language Of Love? The Nomadic Family Travel Blog, Budget World Travel with Kids
I never thought of English as a romantic language until I heard a foreigner speak it. Like that drop-dead gorgeous guy in ER, when asked what his wife who had died was named, whispered, “Daniella” and Kobi and I both went ‘woah!’ and knew, right there, six months pregnant, that our first-born child would have to be named some derivative of that tantalizing sound. [We named our first child ‘Dahnya”]. And Kobi had that ridiculously sexy Israeli-English accent too. Well this survey of 1, 213 ESL speakers reminds me of many things that I had totally forgotten about. Like how Kobi learned English from the lyrics to songs like Tanita Tikaram’s Twist In My Sobriety or Paul Young’s That’s My Home. So, we’re back in Cambodia again, Koh Rong Dive Center is our hub, and the ever-romantic language of Khmer again is singing in our souls. Take a look at this and tell me what makes you smile, what you find is true for you. It definitely made me smile.
