Language Barrier


“Yes.  I’m fluent in Spanish.  I just don’t comprehend it.”

These were Isaac’s words one afternoon last week while we were in Guatemala.  It made me chuckle.  Going someplace foreign where they don’t speak your native language can be overwhelming, confusing, and a little crazy.  One of my goals over the next year is to start learning some more Spanish.  I had it for three years in junior high and three years in high school, but I have a lot of work to do to better comprehend the conversations in Guatemala next time.

Do you know any languages beside English?  Which ones?
