Tuesday Text: Parentexting™

The one where I wonder what all that tuition money was for:

My AP Spanish-taking son...
doesn't remember how to speak the language.
And in his defense, he has been out of high school for 6 months.
???
I guess it is up to me to be the spanish scholar now.
So, last night, when I started my class,
I sat in the front row with my friend Lynnie.
We listened.
We answered. In español.
It's going to be an interesting 10 weeks...
if we can find a tutor.

What language did you take back in school? I took French but later in life took a little Spanish so I could communicate with our employees in Mexico. I think I can ask for the check in Spanish and ask where the library is in French! That's it.

You're such a good mom. I can hardly get the Cub Scouts requirements done.

I took Spanish one year in high school and learned nothing.

Sounds about right. Same thing with my Spawn - four years of Spanish in high school and two semesters in college and still no comprende!

I took eight years of French and can speak very little - I read it well though. JBM is taking Spanish now....hates it and does not speak a word! Guess the tren will continue in adulthood. Should we go back to Pig Latin?

I took four years of Spanish and it only comes back in small dosages when I go to Mexico. Otherwise all I know is chimichanga.

I figured you for an Italian speaking woman....

Refuse to learn Spanish, but I'm proud of you!

Flea said...

Oh man. I am so not jealous. And knowing that my day is coming. *sigh*

Lisa said...

Taco, burrito, that is the extent of my spanish, so if I can be of any help just let me know. I won't charge you for that either...
consider it my gift to you as a friend! But any further help with have to be at a small fee!
