Franglais

Today at Concert Band I found myself playing at the wrong place in the piece. It was because our band director told us to take it from rehearsal G, and I registered it as taking it from rehearsal J because in the french alphabet, G is pronounced Jhaa and J is pronounced Gee. I've been in French Immersion for ten years now, and I think it's affected my ability to speak English. There are a number of words I can never say properly in English, such as Subtract (substract) statistic (satistique) , and many more. I can't even talk French properly. I guess I should never have gone into French.
