Leaving for Switzerland tomorrow, and it's not quite hit me yet; or maybe it has but the reaction is very minimal. Imagining that in a couple of days, everything around me will be in French (again), and I'll be conversing with people for the following 9-10 months almost exclusively in French (small side-trips to different countries; may speak different languages then). Along with that same mentality of all this French stuff, the majority of these blogs will be in French, I believe. Therefore, it's good to recognize some helpful tools in life for dealing with multi-lingual situations. Here's a great one: translate.google.com.
