English as a Second Language Friends at WA
Sitting here at my laptop trying to write a blog post, I have been thinking of our friends at here at WA that write in English as a second language.
I get stuck and struggle to write often and it is so frustrating for me.
As English is my first and only language, you would think I could type out a blog post easily enough.
I want you wonderful multi-lingual people to know I admire you. Your skills and perseverance are commendable.
Even more so because you work through the training in English. Maybe it is just me, but I find the training challenging as an English only speaking person.

I have to tell you something I find funny, my husband is Hispanic. His father's family came from Mexico and his mother was from England.
His Dad was a photographer in the US Air Force and met my husband's mother while he was stationed in England during WWII. He brought her back with him to Texas where they raised their children.
My husband and his siblings do not speak Spanish! They speak English because their Mom only spoke English and they just never needed to learn.
The funny part is my husband looks Hispanic and people think he is lying when he says he doesn't speak Spanish.:)
Anyway, good for you! Now I am getting back to work.
Thank you for reading!
