My son has a friend who just came from Mexico in September. He speaks broken English. My son has been telling me about him all year and how much fun they have together at school. The teacher was telling me that they were the best of friends too at parent teacher conference night. Son has been a little concerned that they don't always understand each other and I have been saying that he will learn more English as the year goes on, and it will be easier to communicate. Last night, my child comes to me and asks if he can learn Spanish. I quote, "I don't think it's fair that I ask HIM to learn English, when I can just as easily try to learn Spanish." I don't think I have ever been more proud of him. P.S. He's 8. Please no hateful comments. Don't burst my bubble, please.
