  • Thank you so much for such a lyrical description of language learning! I’d say that in learning English I’m more of a gardener, but when it comes to Dutch I’m definitely climbing a very tricky mountain. I’m not sure the ‘building the house’ metaphor works for me – languages can be so unpredictable. I’d say it’s more like ‘interior decoration’. (Incidentally, there was a post about the difficulty of English – and other languages – on Prospero last week which makes a very interesting read too).
