Speaking Tamil

I saw someone just now posting a request for a Hindi-speaking nanny, and it made me realize that I would love to have a Sri Lankan-Tamil-speaking assistant who could come to my house and work on stuff with me and also talk to me in Tamil mostly and make me talk to them in Tamil, and maybe that’s not impossible to find?

I was just listening to a Milk Street podcast where he was interviewing a Vietnamese cookbook author, and she was talking about how these Vietnamese words just started showing up, and of course, I was fluent in Tamil as a child, it’s all in my brain somewhere, it’s a problem of access and practice.

I have no NEED to speak Tamil again. But I would kind of love to. Maybe something to think about next year, when we can more easily have people in our homes again…
