On many an occasion, I have contemplated drafting a blog post of my own on the subject but, on each occasion, I preferred to refrain. I didn't much like the idea of commenting on my website on such a hotly debated topic, although I am sure that it would generate a lively discussion.
I prefer, instead, to contemplate the many positives of living in a society that has been vastly enriched by the influence of foreign cultures in ways that are in evidence all around us - in the fabrics we wear, the food that we eat, the films that we watch, the music that we listen to... almost without us realising it, foreign languages and cultures have an impact on a large part of our daily life!
I think it's been fantastic to see the success of foreign language hits like "Despacito" in the UK music charts and equally lovely to watch tennis star Henri Leconte adding a little French flair to the current series of Celebrity Masterchef.
But what I love even more is to walk into a beautiful venue like Sussex Prairie Garden and be greeted, on entering the Gardens, by a sign that welcomes visitors in a wide variety of languages - many of which I couldn't identify.
It's little things like this that make me smile. I'm determined not to incite discussions on my website about the advantages and disadvantages of Brexit - but I love being out and about and stumbling across signs like this in foreign languages, signs that integrate a little of the beauty of a foreign language, a foreign culture into our own.
How many such signs have you come across on your travels? What's the best one you have seen?
