    Post Multi-lingual or at least a Multi-Tool!!

    English and it's dialects:
    - New York City (139th & Amsterdam, Baby!)
    - South Philadelphia ("yo, youse guys!")
    - PA or Pennsylvania to those that don't live here ("I had to take the Pennsey Turnpike up the line to get some scrapple.")
    - The Queen's English ("Ah, Bloody Hell"-- I lived in London 5 years ago and still say it daily!)

    Spanish

    And of course, my favorite: Jive.
    ("She'll catch you on the rebound on the med side" "Yo Momma, I dug her rap." "Jive Turkeys ain't got no brains anyway")

    SORRY... I was watching 'Airplane' last night again.....LOVE that movie!


    Once again....the above views are my own and not that of my department. (And probably should not be construed as having any real meaning, whatsoever!)

    Canadian English and American English are my two strong languages.


    I took a little French (don't shoot me, it is required in Canadian Schools), and a little German. However, I don't think I remember enough to actually carry on a conversation with someone... however, if you ever needed directions to the swimming pool, I could probably butcher it enough to get you in the right direction.

    Like everyone else, I can also speak Fire Department-eise
