Johana Leonie Zauberhexen and Felipe De Matteo
All the languages!
Sun May 19, 2019 00:54

Johana Leonie arrived first, mostly because she wasn't entirely sure she was going to the right place. Ironically, the advertisement itself was in English, and Johana Leonie had had to read it several times. Words like reflecting and participate were hard for her. Still, her dictionary double checked, and the information written down in her own notebook, Johana Leonie was eager to attend and did so with a bounce in her step. She still wasn't totally sure she understood, but it sounded nice.

"Hallo, Dorian," she greeted him, upon entering the room. "Meine Familie kommt. I speak more than Deutsche und English. Want you others?"

She was interrupted by Felipe De Matteo's entrance, and she greeted him with a smile. She hadn't been sure what languages he spoke, particularly as he wasn't signed up for any extra help courses and seemed not to struggle with English the way she did. He was much less surprised to see her, although German was so highly represented at this school that it did seem odd for her to appear first.

"Hello," Felipe said stiffly, doing his best not to seem off-beat for walking in in the middle of the girl's question. He'd heard part of it, but thought that his family would probably not need any languages but English, and wasn't sure that that part applied to him so much. He thought diversity as a whole was a good idea though (that's why he learned those languages in the first place), and wanted to participate in that. He was a little hurt not to see Spanish on the easel though, although Dorian might not have known. "My family speaks lots of languages, but Spanish is the best for us."

OOC -- I write both of these characters, so there's no god-modding here.
