Today's NaBloMoPo prompt: Do you speak more than one language? How did you learn the additional languages?
I speak some Spanish (I understand more than I can actually speak) and a few words and phrases in Navajo. I learned Spanish by taking four semesters of it in college (actually, it's sad that I'm not proficient, given that fact) and practicing occasionally with Spanish-speaking friends. I learned the little bit of Navajo I know from an ex-boyfriend who grew up speaking it in the home. At the time, it was useful to me because I was a nurse who often cared for patients with only spoke Navajo.
Today I am grateful for decongestant. It doesn't completely take away my cold symptoms but it helps.
