Re: Languages!

1. Russian (my native language)
2. Ukrainian (can't avoid it if you're living in Ukraine)
3. English (school)
4. German (school - successfully forgotten completely)
5. Latin (college - also forgotten, apart from In Vino Veritas - that's just a motto)
6. Spanish (college major)

Hi everyone. My cast is primarily over 20 years of age and I'm wondering if there is any difference between writing for children and writing for adults as the target audience.
