    Jun 8 2012: Hello,

    I feel more special when I switch the language (albanian/English) with my sister. I feel like people are watching me and they wish they knew what I was talking about. I also feel that being bilingual, I am more open to new situations with languages. As my German teacher says...learning/speaking new languages helps your brain more than you think.
