I have worked and will work in the future with Spanish-speakers. Also, in general, I believe speaking another language opens a lot of doors. I wish I could say I speak three or four languages! Until that day, I want to make sure I remain fluent in Spanish.
No, I'm not. I studied Spanish in high school and college, but didn't really become fluent until I lived with an Argentine family and also when I worked at shelter for immigrants and refugees in Austin, TX. Since all of my classes are in English, going back to (grad) school has squeezed out what used to be regular Spanish conversation. I intend to change that in 2013!
I just moved to New Orleans for graduate school. For four years I spoke Spanish on a daily basis while working with immigrants and refugees in Austin, TX.
