@rookie54said @FMF the story must be enhanced by reading it in several languages
i'm inspired to learn another language
When I moved to Indonesia, I threw myself into learning the language with considerable gusto.
Two of the things I did were reading the Bible, OT and NT, cover to cover, and buying all the Asterix comics which ~ interestingly enough ~ were shorn of a fair bit of the humour by [I suspect] the translators not actually getting all the references and the irony and the wordplay etc.
Still, it was excellent for delivering dialogue in the most concise and slangy/natural/real way - which is closer to the street-level/on the bus language than the stuff you absorb when learning the language in a grammatically conservative way.
I misread the title, thinking "*", but on further reading I noted I had erred. I too enjoyed the comics and in two languages both of which are "official languages" here in Canada. Great fun those comics.
