I bet you didn’t know that Actor Bradley Cooper spoke fluent French, did you?

One of the few regrets that I have in my life is that I have never mastered another language. I envy those that can, and people usually look puzzled when they see how easily impressed I am with their linguistic skills.
How are they able to think in another language so effortlessly, while I struggle daily just to find the right English words?
My son picked up reading Hebrew so easily for his Bar Mitzvah, which I’m sure most of it he’s forgotten. However, since then, he’s taken four years of French, and according to his teacher, his accent is beautiful. Whenever I ask him to speak French to me, he brushes me off and refuses to indulge me.
At my age, I don’t believe I could ever absorb the complexities of learning a new language. I got close, after studying Spanish for two years in college where I was doing well with basic conversation. Unfortunately, I never immersed myself in a Spanish culture to master it. Now, I’ve forgotten most of what I have learned.
These videos of gorgeous actors is a real treat. What makes these men even sexier is that they have mastered another language. Because of our geographical differences, this is something I see more often in European than in American men.
What I would give to have a language lesson from any of these men!
