My personna is a traveller; she makes a point of picking up the local 
dialect/language quickly *grins*.  Although, in real life I've not 
studied any "old forms" beyond classical Latin & Sanskrit.

Mundanely, I'm struggling in somewhat of a vacuum to learn modern 
conversational Chinese and to revive my Dutch, French, & German 
(trilingual early childhood, English/Dutch/German, forgotten most of it 
over the last quarter century) & would welcome the chance for some 
adult pen-pal-ing in those languages on topics of mutual interest -- 
frequency about one exchange every week or so given my schedule -- please 
reply to this proposal in private email, thanks!
