Yo necessito a practicar mi espanol.

This morning it became evident that I really need to brush up on my spanish. The reality is Latinos are the largest and fastest-growing minority group in the country. In Los Angeles almost everything is printed in both Spanish and English. And there are plenty of people who speak very little English. When you deal with people in construction or hospitality it’s almost imperative that you know enough Spanish in order to communicate with people. This morning I had to rely on the 3 years of Castilian Spanish I took in High School along with that school trip to Spain in order to communicate with a contractor. I didn’t do too bad. I think I’ve retained a good amount of Spanish from high school because at that time pop music was incorporating Spanish into lyrics - such as the song “I Adore, Mi Amore” by Color Me Bad, or “Mentirosa” by Mellow Man Ace and artists such as Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada were popular.

One of my goals for this year was to finally become fluent in Spanish. I think I might start working on that now. So do you think I can become fluent in Spanish in 30 days? I would say a definite “yes” if I moved to Spain for a month and was forced to think and speak in Spanish everyday. But I guess it’s easy enough to immerse yourself in Spanish living in LA. I will also pickup a copy of Rosetta Stone - Spanish since I’ve heard good things about it.
