We begin with two Americans who fell in love with French. American GI Alan Cope loved the language so much he stayed in France after end of World War Two. He lived there for the rest of his life. Anne Ishii also put in some time in France, and used her prowess with the language to date a succession of French men. Also, Star Trek and how the original Captain Kirk et al sound in several European languages. Plus, the German predilection for making up quotes and attributing them to Winston Churchill.
