At this conference we have defaulted to using languages of wider communication. That means that most sessions are in English and are being simultaneously translated into French and Spanish.
Here is a friend and colleague doing some Spanish translation during one session on Saturday morning (or was it Friday night...it is all becoming a blurrrrrrr). Maralee's journey has taken her from Orlando to Washington DC...soon to Paris (language study so she can learn French) and then on to Cameroon (I think I have that right).
I may be one of less than a dozen people in the room of 300+ who only speaks one language. Whew. What was I thinking when I skipped that track of study in high school...college...and beyond? Maralee tells me that it's not too late.
