Languages I speak in the order of fluency, numbered in the order of acquirement

  • Native language: Danish
  • Strong third language: English - I try to write British English but am quite fluent in US idioms and slang too.
  • Strong sixth language: Dutch
  • Passable second language: Swedish
  • Rusty fourth: German - Dutch is smack between Danish and German so I'm like "Ik ben een Berliner"
  • Rusty fifth: French - not speaking it often enough to be really fluent, but tête-à-tête I can have a conversation about more zan ze wayzer :)

comment What does “the gum-treed sky” mean?
Answer: It is a colour. The broad juvenile leaves are borne in opposite pairs on square stems. They are about 6 to 15 cm long and covered with a blue-grey, waxy bloom, which is the origin of the common name "blue gum" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucalyptus_globulus - so there is not a storm brewing, the sky is blue
