this weekend elodie will take her first french class with me at the alliance française in pasadena. i really want her to learn spanish (or italian would be perfetto!) but mine is so rusty that i think at this point it is a pipe dream. so french it is. beautiful and complex. although i won't be able to protect her from that humbling, i am a stupid american feeling, at least she will have more tools at her disposal when she goes to live abroad. if anyone has any tips on language acquisition for toddlers, i'm all ears!
