    I don't think Ken would allow dirty Spanish words because he speaks Spanish.

    Some Spanish and French from school.

    It is of little value in speaking to the people that I come in contact with because they do not speak formally any more than I speak formal English.

    We manage to muddle along with plenty of gestures, confused looks, and laughter.

    I learned some Spanish from working for companies in So California that had Mexican workers, but I did say "some", which isn't very much. OTOH, I have high school classmates that had to take Spanish as a pre-requisite for college.

    Tex, even if you heard a Mexican speaking PERFECT ENGLISH, you could still tell he was a Mexican by his ACCENT!

    Similarly, If you spoke perfect Spanish, a Mexican might not understand you because you may not be stressing the correct ACCENTS in the correct places!

    I've heard many Gringos speaking Spanish, thinking their speech would be perfectly understood by a Latino, but I cringe when I hear them speak unaccented Spanish words, which would sound meaningless to a Latino.
