Why I’m Thankful for Learning Spanish

by Jake Beus November 21st, 2012 More

Friends Thanksgiving episodeEvery year around Thanksgiving I take time to reflect about the things for which I am thankful. You can bet that I am grateful for the opportunity to learn Spanish. Learning Spanish has opened doors and provided me with opportunities I would not otherwise have.

I met a Guatemalan man in Boston, Massachusetts on a work visa. His name is Eric Quixaj, and he became one of my great friends. We were able to take part in some service activities together and he has a giant heart. He has since returned to Guatemala and I have been unable to contact him, but the memories remain.

I am certainly not the brightest star in the sky, but I do know that learning Spanish has sharpened my memory. I am under the opinion that, with regard to memory, if you don’t use it, you lose it. I believe that it’s important to continue learning no matter what age you are.

And how can I not take a moment to be thankful for all the Spanish-speaking people I’ve met in my life. I have had the privilege of meeting people from nearly every Spanish-speaking country in the world. I have also had many wonderful home-cooked meals with these wonderful individuals.

Those are a few reasons I’m thankful for learning Spanish. What language are you learning, and why are you thankful for it?

    I agree with you on the point of there being no age limit for learning and one should continue learning something or the other in order to be self-active. Seems you had a great experience with Spanish language. I am learning Russian and am having grand time of it learning a foreign language. I am learning Russian with the help of language learning software that is easily available online.

    There are many benefits of learning Spanish, not only it is used widely throughout the world, it also opens the door for learning other languages such as Mexican and Portuguese. Being a Portuguese, I’m thankful to those who made both languages much similar to each other.
