I have written before about my Rosetta Stone journey (which I have been neglecting. Lo siento, espaÃ±ol!), but my Spanish is passable enough to allow me to communicate marginally with the Spanish-speaking tourists who come to my job daily. I still retain a marginal level of French-speaking ability, even though I used to be fluent, and I can converse with our amis Francophones as long as they remind me of words I have forgotten. But if I had to choose one language to be fluent in it would absolutely be Spanish.
And that’s today’s LTP: What language do you wish you could speak? Why? For me, Spanish is just a lot more useful. I haven’t used my French in a decade except for a trip to France… and… kind of being obnoxious when I say “croissant.” But Spanish is useful in social work, so it would be helpful career-wise. So what about you? Also, is it a language you already know a little, or one you’ve never even tried but really wish you could speak?
