Interesting fact I would like to tell SJCS parents & students:
A dabbler in languages, I can get myself into trouble in multiple languages. I once used “Karte” wrong in German and another time “Carte” wrong in French, but they were wrong in the same way. A native Texan, I’ve lived twent-eight percent of my life in South Carolina. My wife and I have have nine children, none of whom likes baseball. Ask them about the German soccer Bundesliga, however….
