My dear Aunt, Roman Skulski's sister, passed away just yesterday. She had her Ph.D. and was required to work as a domestic for a year in the mid-40's. It was an embittering experience. The language school she attended had many French students and an Australian teacher. She was shaken when asked by a fellow student, "where are you going to die?" until she sorted out the accent and realized the student meant 'today'. She always lamented her poor accent and credited it to the classroom situation.
