:::: lost in translation

learning a language 
is easier when you live where it is spoken
you pick up the slang, the abbreviated
the phrases and sayings
and the nuances of regional dialects
here being Occitane, Ariegois and Catalan
you worry less about the le and the la
the correct tense and endings
you just go with it

but when it's 2am 
and you're feeling fine
with wine
try explaining cockney rhyming slang 
it ain't bright and breezy to bubble and squeak, treacle
