Sometimes I surprise myself

Today I had my first fluent conversation with some Spanish people (in Spanish). After two hours of lectures where I understood about 99% of what the lecturer was saying. Now, I know languages come easy for me and I also know that if you're actually surrounded by a language, you learn quickly. But this quickly? Though hey, I'm perfectly happy with that. But, like, so if I spent a month in France, I could be fluent in French? I'm going to guess my Finnish and German would need a bit of grammar revision before trying the same... but. Wow. I always assumed there was something unique about English. Maybe the unique thing is just my fascination with it.

Gosh, I should really learn some more languages properly.
