Maura: So we always try to choose someone to interview that has something a little bit interesting about them that we can talk about. And I have to say that out of all the people that we’ve interviewed on Culips, I think that Georgina speaks the most languages, which is pretty cool and I’m pretty jealous of, I have to say..
Georgina: Thanks. That’s very flattering of you..
Maura: So, first tell us a bit about yourself. You’re from Montreal and what else do we need to know about you?
Georgina: Uh, I’m from Montreal. I’ll tell you how many languages I speak. Because I was born in Montreal, obviously I speak English and French. Um, I’m Chinese, so I also speak the Chinese dialect of Cantonese. And because I love Japan, I, uh, for the past five years, I have been learning how to speak Japanese. So I speak those four languages.
Maura: Very impressive
Georgina: Thank you.
Maura: So, you grew up in Montreal and you grew up speaking three different languages then, right?
Georgina: Basically, yes.
Maura: And how did you learn and manage three different languages at the same time?
