Which is why I'm not worried about the increasing use of Spanish in America. More and more jobs in our service oriented economy are in need of bilingual English/Spanish workers to fill them. Which gives you an edge if you speak both languages. So why am I not worried? First, I have a Spanish-speaking girlfriend, and I'll eventually fall back on her to bring home the bacon if I have to, but second, I have that language disability, so I'm going to use the ADA to keep any job I have if they ever dare to even hint at letting me go because I can't communicate (except in caveman style) with half the customers.
Which brings me to our Blog of the Moment!
Written by Benny Lewis, self-described "polygot", the blog is frequently updated and full of helpful language learning stuff. And when he says "3 months" he means it! This is fast language skills acquisition we're talking! There's even a forum for others success stories. It's just too bad I'm disabled and unable to take advantage. Oh, well.
