Reason #2 Speaking Spanish keeps you young

Updated: Jun 16, 2019

Consider this: By the time you’re an adult, you’ve learned how to act and what to say. You’re not embarrassed or uncertain or terribly self-conscious anymore. You’ve settled into being sophisticated. It gets a little boring.

Now, try to understand a speaker of Spanish and respond anywhere near appropriately. It will make you feel young in a sense you thought was over. Being unsure of yourself is young. Being scared is young. Being nervously alert to another person is young. You will feel exhilarated and alive when you get through an exchange in Spanish. It will make you humble to have been off balance. That will make other people see you as approachable and friendly.
