I finally have been able to start the two challenges I set myself - learn how to speak French and learn how to read music.
I do regret not learning how to read and write music in my youth.
I went to juggling class for a while, got quite good, lost the knack now
All our kids are either bilingual or trilingual.One of my biggest regrets is not learning to speak a language. I'm so keen on my girls learning one

Along with regular travel abroad, it does tend to make one realise that nationalism and isolationalism is on the whole a bad thing!
When i travelled round Indonesia quite a few of the locals spoke english.. ok limited to 'English ah Fish and Chips' or 'David Beckham' or 'Man-united' ffs!I met a French girl on a little Indonesian island out of a group of 5 she was the only one to speak English. Her English had improved while Traverling. Her friends refused to speak English all through Bangkok down to Bali.
Result was they struggled. And didn't socialise or mix with a fraction of people she did.
