Karou Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I can only speak one language, that of English, but when I went to an all french school in first grade I was able to quickly pick up the french language there, the proper french, from Paris; Parisian French . mhm but I lost it.

I Iike the book I’m reading right now, so let me share with you the part about how Karou acquires many languages. If a Polyglot is one who knows many languages than Karou is a Polyglot

It would be sooo cool to be able to speak another language like Karou! Just to make use of a wish and then BAM! I could speak Chinese if I wanted to 🙂

Karou had been new to Prague and had known no one. Her Czech was freshly acquired (by wish, not study; Karou collected languages, and that’s what Brimstone always gave her for her birthday) and it had still tasted strange on her tongue, like a new spice.

She’d been at a boarding school in England before that, and though she was capable of a flawless British accent, she had stuck with the American one she’d developed as a child, so that was what her classmates had thought she was. In truth, she had claim to no nationality. Her papers were all forgeries, and her accents–all except one, in her first language, which was not of human origin–were all fakes.
