Lost in Translation

I have always wanted to learn how to speak a foreign language. At home, my mom and her siblings speak fluent Spanish while most of my cousins and I get lost in translation once they start babbling away in Spanish. I have tried learning the language with books and audio tapes but so far, I can only pick up a few phrases and words.

I think being able to speak another language is such a big advantage, especially in today's world. People who are fluent in French, Mandarin, Spanish, Japanese and other widely spoken languages are in high demand. Jobs can range from call center agents to being a translator for big companies.My friend who speaks fluent French got a great online job tutoring French students, simply because he could speak the language!

As for me, I would love to enrol in a course to learn another language, if only I can fit in the time. I particularly would like to learn French, even though my family is Spanish. Even though they say the latter is more practical, I have always loved the melodic sound of the French language. I can imagine myself strolling down the Champs Élysées with my best friend just chatting away in the native tongue. However, for the meantime, I have settle for those  free translation services or dictionaries online to learn it but one day, I will write a blog post in French for you to read!!!
