    You know I’m a sucker for foreign languages, so this is especially cool for me to see. More Americans should try to learn a foreign language to fluency.

    I will say, though, that her French accent is a bit lacking, though her grasp of the language is quite good. How’s her German? She sounded a bit more confident in German to me, but I’m not good enough at German to really know!

    @Harmony: As far as my ear can tell, her German accent is fairly good, but her grasp of the language seems more impressive to me. She has a slightly larger vocabulary than I do and doesn’t stumble over inflection the way I do. (I can’t verify that she’s getting it right, but at least, as you said, she can speak confidently.)
