Bitty who has always had anxiety surrounding speaking in other languages. Who took Spanish in high school because it was all they offered, sneakily got through it by writing really great essays and never talking in class. Taking French in college not only because he loves his French Canadian boyfriend to death but because he’s always had a romantic allurement to Paris and the French language and culture. Who wants to do his best speaking in this new language but struggles to verbalize the words that form so clearly in his mind.
Cue Jack, who used to have a severe stutter, breaking out his speech pathology tricks to help Bitty get over his fear of public speaking in his second language. Helps him figure out the english words he feels comfortable with—apple—to take the place of the similar sounding French words. Je m’appelle = Je m apple.
Jack’s little proud face when Bitty succeeds!!
