One More Time

Before Christmas I was studying Icelandic. But I was too conscious of my learning to dare to speak to anyone other than other learners. Now that I'm not taking Icelandic any longer, I speak to store clerks in Icelandic now. Of course, I only say things like, "How much is this?" "What's the time?" "I'd like to order this..."
But still. Having a conversation without the crutch of English is so satisfying. I don't know when I started doing this. At first it was just for fun. But now it's more like, "Why should I speak English if I know the sentence in Icelandic?"
Now if only I could do that with my French in Quebec and Paris...
