Day 26 NaBloMoPo

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.

  1. I'm fluent in one language. Terrible I know. I used to speak German when I lived in Germany but it has been 12 years and the old "if you don't use it you lose it" does apply to me.
