Excuse me?

The girls are back from their trip to the in-laws. As expected, their Arabic has improved a lot and their other languages have gone a bit rusty.

BK1 is currently building funny sentences with very interesting structure and she is clearly not as confident as she was before they left.

BK2 invents "German" words by adding an "en" at the end of whatever she is saying.

The effect is clearly more visible with BK2: she is talking to me in some language that remotely sounds like German but I do not understand a single word.

Poor BK2! We'll see how that works itself out. I'm sure it will.
