a.k.a. Language tag!
This post is based on the Language tag which is normally answered in a video shared on Youtube. I wasn’t tagged but found the questions interesting and felt more comfortable answering them in writing.
1. What do you consider to be your native language?
French. I was raised by monolingual parents in a monolingual country so this one was easy.
2. What was your first language learning experience?
For a long time, I thought it was learning my first Spice Girls’ song around the age of 8, but I’m not so sure anymore. My mother has a cousin who lives in Spain and we visited her a few times when I was a kid. She used to own a bar in Barcelona, and I remember spending a few hours there, desperate to help around the bar despite my young age.
