How are you learning Spanish? / ¿Por cuál manera aprendas el inglés?

I lived in Madrid as a child with my parents (Air Force). I am retired from the Army and work as a freelance translator from Spanish and German to English, specializing in medical and scientific documents.

Have you traveled abroad? / ¿Has viajado a un país extranjero?

I have traveled widely as a former U.S. Army officer. Mostly in Europe but also the Middle East and South America.

What is most difficult about learning a new language? / ¿Cuál es lo más difícil de aprender un idioma nuevo?

Letting go of your natural inhibitions and being willing to make mistakes. You have to do this in order to practice and get better but it is difficult for many people.

What group meetings are you interested in? / ¿Cuales son las reuniones de este grupo que te interesan?

As often as I can. It is much easier for me to come on a weekend than during the week.

Where did you hear about us? / ¿De cuál manera nos encontraste?

Maurice and I were in Spanish classes at UCO together.


Estoy jubilado del ejército y trabajo como traductor de documentos médicos.
