Spoke in a Spanish speaking household for 5 days!
My boyfriend is bilingual (spanish and english) but his family doesnt know english nearly as well as his so they speak spanish at home. When i visited, I spoke as much spanish as i could to make a good impression! glad i had duolingo to practice.
Now I need a spanish gf that I will swap for a chinese gf in a year and then for an arabic gf in 3 years. :D
That's wonderful! I now have bilingual family members but am not confident enough yet to speak their native language with them. My goal is to at least understand what they are saying when they are all speaking Spanish. So far, the youngsters got a shock when I understood what they were saying and responded in English. That's PROGRESS for this old lady!
