Very difficult but not impossible...the trick is to choose the language associated to the words: why would you use, let's say Italian, for "good morning" rather than French, or Polish, or...you get my drift.

Did Gaff, in the few words exchanged, used all of the languages of CitySpeak? (I don't remember how many were used in that scene btw).

I'm bilingual (French/English)and when I speak with other bilingual friends, our conversation is in both languages...why? Because, according to context and the things we want to say, an English word, or idiomatic expression is "stronger" than it's French counterpart...and vice versa of course. That's why it could be very difficult to "choose the right word/expression in the right language Confused
