Since I have a new friend who speaks mostly Spanish I started texting in her language. I thought it would be easier. She appreciates it very much. It was good in another way. This was a great opportunity for me to learn a new language. Learning a new language is something I've talked about for years. Jim Rohn talks extensively about learning new skills. A new language certainly is that.
The good thing about the Spanish language is that it's become more necessary (insert political opinion here). I really am enjoying it. One of my five strengths according to the strengths finder is that I am a learner. It's true, I love to learn new things, but I'm not looking to be an expert. Just be able to have a conversation and not sound like an idiot.
I still sound like an idiot with Spanish, but so far it's been fun.
