#78 | Turning Over a New Líofa: Fluency is a Whatchamacallit

Gearóidín and Peadar discuss the idea of fluency. Can you really be fluent? Even if you know literally all the words? Gearóidín and Peadar can communicate in Finnish and French respectively by shrugging and being rude, but that doesn’t indicate fluency. And as for legal language, that’s a whole other ball game.

As usual, practically none of these questions actually get answered as our heroes boldly get distracted by video games, knitting and swear words.
