I had a similar experience myself in school. When I was 10 a guy joined our class in Dublin, over from England (returned emigrant Irish parents). Without a word of Irish on day one, within months he was the best in the class!!Anecdotal i know but, 8 year old Russian girl joined my nieces class less than three months ago. Not a word of English, in that short space of time she's nearly fluent in English and has bypassed the rest of her class in Irish.
God damn foreigners destroying our heritage :roll:
