    Heart never lie. But we shall agree that heart itself need adequate gestures and languages to have it transmitted to other hearts.

    I can see that. But I ever worked with many nurses from your country, they spoke perfect English, just some were with little Urdu dialect.

    Unfortunately not, Arpan.

    I saw some friends from India, Srilanka, and Bangladesh writing letters in Urdu but never have opportunity to speak about.

    Reading and writing Arabic those time were among the priorities since we had to use it in daily work especially in dealing with patients who speak no English.

    I don't know Urdu myself, anyway.

    Urdu is very similar, very very similar to Hindi, which I know, India's national language in fact. So, I can understand Urdu speech (not written text) to some extent. Written Urdu is completely different from hindi script.

    My mother tongue, however, is Bengali.

    Welcome back, Jaidyn. Have a good time?

    Exactly, mate Well said. Unfortunately there is no rep-ing here in the "Chillout Room" otherwise I would have been glad to Rep you !!
    Thanks, Arpan. I know you would have.

    Ha ha ha Don't take it seriously. I avoid the term fluent as behind the scene I many times edited my post to have it less scrambled.

    I am of course familiar with medical terms because you know it I'm a nurse. Even spent 3 years working two mental hospital in Saudi Arabia.

    Talking about language difficulties. English is not alone. I do write, read, and speak some Arabic. It also has it own curves. I believe other languages too.
    You all do a great job! I would imagine it's not only the memorization of words and alphabet of different languages, but it's also the syntax of subject, verb, pronouns, and adjective order so far as sentence structure goes.

    I'm an American mutt. 1/4 Slovak, which my sir name comes from, and 1/4 Polish on my fraternal side. Those grandparents came from Warsaw and settled in Chicago right before WWI. Maternally 1/4 French and 1/4 English. My mother's maiden name was Frizzell. They came to the U.S. via Canada and settled in the state of Missouri many generations ago. I know very few Polish phrases. I don't know the other two.

    Today is a good day even though it's raining. I've got my java, calling my children, catching up on emails and the like, and cruising the forum and posting. What could be better?

    Today I had to tell a friend that I thought he was addicted to pain killers he takes for the pain he has do to a bad hip. Not an easy task I must say, for they live in denial. He's been putting off a replacement for about a year now. A few other friends have noticed that he hasn't been himself as well as we talked in conversations. He's been very touchy and resentful. Not at all like him.

    I'm talking very hard narcotics and now from a few doctors. Not a good sign at all! I think he would rather live in the pain just so he can take the drugs, if that makes any sense. They'll do anything just for the high. Bummer indeed for he's a nice guy!
