In how many languages do you read?
3 ( Kurdish – Arabic – English )
1 1/2. English and Pennsylvania Dutch (I read Amish fiction sometimes)
My Love For Amish Stories Is Growing, Written In English Though.
Out of curiosity what is Pennsylvania dutch? Could you write an example sentence?
It’s basically German, because the Amish are (I think) immigrants from Germany in the 1700s.
Love Amish Fiction 🙂
