What is your Spanish ability level?

Understand most Spanish, get lost with some accents or those who speak really fast. I know, can speak but have limited vocabulary and forget tense at times.

How do you use your Spanish?

I travel to Mexico frequently, understand Spanish but mostly respond in English due to my lack of confidence in my skills. Also at work, it would help to be able to respond in Spanish.

Have you travelled to or lived in a Spanish-speaking country? Where?

Travel to various places/regions in Mexico over the last 10+ years.

What are your favorite hobbies?

Travel, walking, water sports, tennis, going out to listen to live music, learning about culture and events.

Name one unique thing about yourself.

People always say, I look "very Mexican" but was not raised with my culture/heritage so am not a native speaker but most people have always assumed I fluently speak Spanish. So I need to become fluent :-)

Introduction

I am a 4th gen Mexican-American, never spoke Spanish at home and Love travel to Mexico. I have tried classes and have limited Spanish but need to practice to become fluent.
