    Languages Are Amazing

    I think it would be amazing to be able to speak many languages fluently. To me a language is a key part of a country's culture and so if you can speak it fluently, you almost become a part of that. I can already speak English, French and German.... but I'd love to learn another...

    Spanish And French

    I grew up in Puerto Rico so I know some Spanish but not much. Which is sad. I know some French because my first husband was from Paris. But I really want to know more of each. At home we speak Spanish sometimes but mostly when the kids are in trouble.
