Betty: You've missed quite a lot of lessons lately, haven't you? Are you losing your enthusiasm?
Joan: Yes, I'm afraid so. Neither Simon nor I have a gift for languages. People just laugh at us when we attempt to speak German. How did you and Eric pick it up so quickly and easily? You've hardly been in Germany a month.
