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.
