Why I still can't speak Russian, or French, or Spanish, or Greek, or Arabic, or Esperanto... or even Christian

Insight from millinerd - It's Germany fresh!:

[S]tudying a language for "reading knowledge" (we didn't have to speak a word) is like studying theology without going to Church - it just doesn't stick.

Don't get me wrong: I attend Mass weekly. It just doesn't seem like it's enough, though. Of course, I used to attend Mass daily some years back, and I wasn't any better a theologian back then, either. I suppose it might help if I studied some actual theology. :-)
