Ok i've been here in Tennessee long enough to have the right to make fun of one thing. I took spanish one year in high school, taught by a local teacher, and although I don't remember much I do remember the accent. Hablay esta oosta senior. Like I can take that anywhere in the country and have any hopes of getting a job....it still kills me to this day when I think about it. The guy sitting next to me was nick named sausage.

How random. <g> I had a very good Spanish teacher in high school, but then again, she was from Illinois. Unfortunately, our school only offered two semesters of Spanish (and no other languages at all, ridiculous). But she gave me the headstart I needed to test into second-year Spanish in university, and now I'm fluent!

That's impressive, jab! I took five years of French, and still can't speak the language.

Wink My one year old grandson is also fluent in Spanish!!

My youngest grandson (age 1 yr. old) speaks fluent Spanish. He lives in El Paso with my son (also fluent, works in Mexico) and my Mexican-born daughter-in-law.

Thankfully, he can only say "da-da", "ma-ma" and "aqua". So, at this point we can still understand each other.

You have to do a lot of outside work. Plus, I have many friends and coworkers who are Spanish, which enables me to practice nearly every day.

¡Y las de tuyo también! I'm working on Catalan Spanish now, and have studied a bit in Italian, the result of which is that I can usually understand French (text)...

... now, trying to understand it spoken, or speaking it.... that's a whole nother matter, as we say down here.

Hey, jabogitlu, do you want to give some Spanish lessons?

I really want to brush up to be able to communicate better with my son's in-laws. My grandson is bilinqual and I want to be able to keep up with the little guy.
