    Wow, this is good stuff. I am native speaker. However, I do not speak correct Spanish. I come to live in States when i was only 14yrs old. Made it a point to speak as much English as possible. Dated only English speaker, and my Spanish went out the door. I still speak it, but it’s not solid, i often stumble around. i think, i am make it sound worse than what really is. However, when I speak with someone that just arrived from a Latin country it puts me to same. Especially if the are college graduate. This is good, good stuff.
