Spanish Language

Yo soy de Nuevo México, un lugar que me encanta. Desde que era niño, he sido influenciado por el multiculturalismo en el estado y el uso de la lengua española. Yo siempre me he desafiado a aprender a hablarlo, escribirlo y entenderlo. Hoy en día, me siguen tratando de hacerme más y más fluido. Porque creo que el aprendizaje de un idioma nuevo es valioso en muchos aspectos.
