My high school Spanish teachers were from Argentina. I learned two things: 1) Argentina Spanish is not like the rest of Western Hemisphere Spanish, and therefore, 2) I should never try my Spanish out lest I be mocked severely. Mostly, I’ve forgotten everything except baño, cerveza, and bibliotecha.
