14TH ANNUAL PIRATE FEST
SEPT 4-7, 2018
CHECK IT OUT!
I hit a landmark birthday earlier this year, and lately I’ve been pondering what it all means. I’m in that nostalgic mood, where I’m reflecting on decisions made and all the things I did or didn’t do. Overall, I have no complaints. Well, no major complaints.
Actually, I am slightly irked about one little thing: Why the hell am I not fluent in Spanish?
I have nieces and nephews who were fluent in Spanish by the time they were five years old. My wife is fluent in Spanish. My kids are fluent in Spanglish, which is still light years beyond me. But dammit, I have been studying Spanish since high school and that includes three years in college! All these years of formal learning and the best I can spit out is a few dirty words (thanks to my brother-in-law), and “donde es el bano?” I wonder if I can get a refund on tuition for all those Spanish classes I took in 2000 somethingish?
But college refunds aside, I am wondering how come I didn’t get at least the Spanglish card? And that’s when my wife, the keeper of the languages, explained the secret: Kids don’t learn a language…they acquire a language.
