Why not be bilingual?
At my job I interact with people who only speak Spanish. I need to conduct business in their language.
I’m a teacher and some of my students have limited English skills. I’d like to know some Spanish so I can help them learn.
I have relatives who don’t speak English and I want to communicate with them (and understand what they might be saying about me!)
I’m dating someone whose first language is Spanish and Spanish is a romance language.
My husband/wife/friend and I want to travel to a Latin American country and want to be able to ask for directions, order food, shop, check into hotels.
In San Diego I come in contact with people who speak Spanish and I’d like to be able to converse with them in Spanish.
It’s fun to speak another language and it doesn’t hurt to try it!
