I'm 32!!! I'm watching a pirated movie with Spanish sub titles... Irritating, I know. Yo no hablo espanyol. But while I had no interest in learning Spanish I learned it anyway and now while casually watching this movie more than a decade since my last Spanish class I get the jist of the subtitles.
I know enough to make sense of it, not to speak enough to communicate. And I'm someone who never cared to learn and blatantly cheated by using a translator on the net in the back room of class.
The sweetest person ever... but she doesn't really know what's going on. A wonderful lady, but not a super teacher.
