We are currently in Brazil for a mixture of business and pleasure. This is the first time our daughter is spending so much time in a Portuguese-speaking country. We are hoping this is going to boost her Portuguese a little as it is clearly her weakest language.
LJ is sitting in a bookstore in São Paulo reading a book. A little boy comes over, looks at her book and says to her:
pointing at the turtle in the book.
Leila turns to him and says:
moi je dis tortue**
She then went on to play with him and tell him the names of the animals in French while fully aware he was speaking "like Papa"! The boy was suitably impressed.
* turtle in Portuguese
** i say turtle (in French)
