Waiting For My Sister To Arrive

My sister is coming to see us for a little while and will be arriving from Montreal this afternoon. I can't wait as we always have so much fun when she is her or when I am over there in Quebec. One thing that we always do when sister is here is play Scrabble in French. I am not too good at playing Scrabble in English, a lot easier in my mother tongue. Do you play Scrabble and if so, in what language do you prefer to play that word game?

we played a lot of Scrabble as kids, ..in english because i haven't seen that word game in our Native Language. play it occasionally when I go home to my mother's place. Will definitely do it this time, thanks. Have a wonderful time with your sister. Quote for you ... "The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend." — Cali Rae Turner

@ridingbet We are all retired, so it is not really a "vacation" like we used to have when working, we can do whatever we want and whenever we like. Fun, fun, fun.

I love playing Scrabble, but it has to be in English since I'm fluent only in this language. I know little bits of other languages but nothing good enough for that game! Have fun with your sister!

I like playing Scrabble and Upwords is another game that is a bit easier and a lot of fun. I only play in English. My French is pretty 'school-girlish'.

I'm a terrible speller and never liked scrabble as a result. I even spelt scrabble wrong there, and had to correct it! I hope that you'll have a fun time during her visit!

I have always been an excellent speller so I have no trouble playing that game of Scrabble.

I am so happy for you. I didn't visit family since 8 year now because of lack of money, I am from 'Québec ' and missing it sooooo much. I live in the Maritimes now and wish to visit more often. I have still have 2 of my oldest brothers and one sister living there still. For me it is always easier to do things in French.
