I live in the Midwest. I'm sure I had friends who spoke Spanish at home, but they weren't open about it in person. It's very whitewashed up here in certain areas. I did move to an area after college that was heavily Spanish, and I could have used it then had I remembered any of it. I picked up certain words from the stores and stuff, but nothing to really stick with me. We really need to change how we view foreign languages here.
We shouldn't be waiting until high school to learn a second language. But who decides what the second language we learn at the same time as we start 1st or 2nd grade will be?
Interesting! I didn't realize there were different Greek languages, but now that I think of it, it makes sense, as English has gone through many changes.
I learned Latin in high school, for a year. Only because I was tired of French (3 years). Then in college I took Spanish and Anglo-Saxon English.
I wish I stuck with them. I can only do basics now. Even with Spanish, I never used it. I was told growing up, oh my gosh, you need to learn a second language, Spanish is it, etc etc. I took French to rebel, lol. Then I took Spanish, but I never, ever heard Spanish outside of the classroom, TV, and songs.
So it never stuck. I should start up again though. I just have to decide which one!
Hi! Looking to figure out how to do this. So I'm introducing myself. Ruby here. I like reading, writing, crafts, drawing, decorating, collecting card decks and some other things. I love Batman, Harley Quinn, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Katana, ahhh... Star Trek, Dr. Who, Harry Potter, The Big Bang Theory, um... I love Joe Kenda! I love Halloween and Christmas. ET, The Nightmare Before Christmas, horror movies/psychological thrillers, with a few artsy indie types. I also like documentaries. I like to ride my bike. I have a recumbant (sp?) bike for rainy days. Not a fan. I want a regular stationary one, but it was what I could afford at the time. Okay, I think I've rambled enough!
