I want to think of the right word in Spanish quickly instead of fumbling for the word or settling for Spanglish.
Cafe Piquet, Mi Pueblito.
Born in Cuba, raised in San Juan PR. Have lived in Mexico and Spain.
Writers: Carlos Eire (Waiting for Snow in Havana), F. Bauer (el puente de Alcantara). Singers: Willie Chirino.
I want to speak Spanish more often and meet people with an interest in the language. Took plenty of grammar in school. I speak the language well, but concerned I'll get rusty.
This group is easy going, few seem to be shy and those that needed help with Spanish got it. There is a good ratio of solid Spanish speakers to those who are still improving their language skills. Truly a great opportunity to speak Spanish without feeling embarrased or self-concious.
