In 20 minutes, I leave from JFK for Iceland, then Scotland, and then a circle in Europe that will include Oktoberfest in Munich. Germany is strategic, as I want to “reactivate” my German before the media tour there.Few topics provoke more anxiety and depression in language lovers than the prospect of forgetting a hard-earned language.

How can you possibly maintain fluency in two foreign languages let alone five or six if the opportunities to use them are months or years apart?In 20 minutes, I leave from JFK for Iceland, then Scotland, and then a circle in Europe that will include Oktoberfest in Munich. Germany is strategic, as I want to reactivate my German before the media tour there.Few topics provoke more anxiety and depression in language lovers than the prospect of forgetting a hard-earned language. After you return to your English-dominated homeland, how do you maintain your newfound skills, which seem to have yogurt-like expiration dates? Having juggled close to a dozen languages keeping some and losing others and having suffered the interference that goes it all, my answer now is simple: you dont.It is easier, and much more time-efficient, to catch up versus keep up.Why struggle to maintain a foreign tongue in the US, for example, when you most often gain nothing more than bad habits? If you acquire the language in a native environment and attain an intermediate or advanced level of fluency, you can reactivate your language skills in four weeks or less when approached meth
