April list 4: Counting to 10

Languages in which I can count to ten, requested by [personal profile] porkwithbones.

1. English
I mean, duh, right?

2. German
I could count to twelve in German when I was still in single digits thanks to a made-up nursery rhyme in the comic strip Pogo.

3. Spanish
I learned this in single digits too, entirely because of Public Television and elementary school determining we needed to know this. This was long before I ever came south to Florida, much less Texas.

The language everyone expects, but I can't: French. I know that "cinq" is five, don't know how. Let's see. Un, Deux (thanks again, Pogo!); troi for three? Something resembling "quatre" for four? Yeah, you can see where this is going.
