My colleague Rosa is one of those teachers who are keen on learning English and devote a lot of time to it.
It all happened at Stockholm airport. Rosa and I went into the taxis' office since the ones we had booked from Valencia would not turn up.
We both came up to the counter where a blonde-haired Swedish girl was about to have her lunch. As soon as she listened to us, she readily put her lunch tray aside and got hold of the phone: she was going to find out where our taxis were.
After a few minutes, I saw Rosa under strain. The colour fell from her face.
'What's up, Rosa?' I asked her, 'What's wrong?'
Rosa, keeping her eyes on the Swedish girl, said, 'You see, I can't get a single word of what she's saying'.
