“Over my ‘Ead,” by Jake Barton

Join The Displaced Nation in a glass of dry sherry and some delicious tapas in honor of our favorite displaced blog post of the week — “Over my ‘Ead” by Jake Barton.

Jake’s experience of language classes in another country reminds us that a common first language does not necessarily a friendship make:

“Who needed language classes? We decided we’d do as we’d done in France. Cultivate the society of locals, pick up the language in a natural manner, avoid red-faced expats wearing unsuitable clothing.”

Well said, sir.
