Oops!… We Did It Again (Bilingual Вірш)

Erm… hullo there. (This is rather awkward…)

Dear Reader, the stuff that was originally posted here has been removed.

We have done this because said stuff has since been included in one of our published books. We hope you’ll believe us when we say we’re not trying to be stingy. No, this has been done to honour the people who have already spent their hard-earned money on our eBook creations.*

If, however, for some reason you’re unable to buy one of our books, and feel you’ll die without seeing this piece of writing, then please contact us via admin@unbolt.me. We won’t allow our Dear Readers to fade away in the dark. We’ll send you the piece in question, and it will be absolutely free. All you need do is ask.

* Of course, we would be like two happy puppies if you too decided to buy one of our books.

    • No, because I speak and write in four languages: Catalan (mother tongue), Spanish (second language), English and German (learned later when I was 8 years old and 18 respectively). English and German are my work languages, but they also connect me with great friends, which makes me feel emotionally involved. In my school we, teachers, are trying to promote plurilingualism (not to be confused with multilingualism: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-multilingualism-and-plurilingualism). My poem “Plurilingual” is meant to be an experiment in this field.

    • I honestly wish I’d been taught another language from when I was young, but in the years I was growing up our country didn’t value other languages and cultures very much. I think it would be very hard for me to learn another language at my age, but it’s possible I guess. Thank you for sharing, Marta. I really appreciate it.

    • It is never too late to learn another language. This is a false assumption. I have been working as a foreign language teacher for many years and with students of all ages. The people who learn most are those with great willpower, interest and persistence. Where there’s a will there’s a way. To acquire basic knowledge of a language is relatively easy, but to master it is almost impossible. I don’t even master my mother tongue, Catalan, so I am quite satisfied with my humble writing attempts in the other languages. Also, I am happy to have a few blog followers. 😎
