sounds like a great opportunity to learn spanish, every cloud....
Back when I was in school many, many years ago, we had a choice of french or spanish for a foreign language. I chose french. Learned a lot of words
and greetings but could never carry on a conversation. I suck at languages and don't ever plan on moving out of the country. And with hundreds of

This is one reason so many people resent the spanish speaking population because they have come here illegally in such huge numbers and refuse to
speak english. Because of that, we are now required to speak 'thier' language for many jobs, press one for english on the phone, signs everywhere in
spanish. We never had to change for any other culture.
I would never ever live in a foreign country and expect the people of that country to cater to 'my' language. That is arrogant, rude and
