I am of mixed Mexican-Indian heritage and it’s a shame I don’t speak Spanish even as a second language. Learning Spanish, to me, is sort of an attempt to reconnect with my roots. My abuelita was fluent in Spanish but she’s no more. So PeppyBurro is playing that role for me. Literally! The way things are explained in these articles, it’s really like a mother holding your hands through your lessons.
I have lived among Hispanics all my life and yet was never able to pick their language. They speak so damn fast! Amit’s articles have helped me not only break that barrier but also break the ice with a lot of wonderful people around me. Now I can connect with them on a whole new level. I also feel amazingly educated in their culture and way of life.
As someone who speaks English with reasonable fluency, I was thrilled when PeppyBurro taught me that Spanish was gonna be easy for me. Unfortunately, nobody in my family speaks English but I am lucky, I guess. PeppyBurro has made me realize that English can open the door to most European languages and Spanish seems the easiest now.
