When I first started IU graduate school by coming to SWSEEL 1974, Russian was the main feature at all levels, and we were all expected to speak only Russian in the dorm.

As an inveterate kid-in-the-language-candy-shop, I wish I had a year of summers to devote to some of them. The Polyglot was good enough to ask me to reflect on how my own SWSEEL experience has affected my life and career. OK: pojexali!
