I speak like a child

Published November 19, 2015 by lynn k scott

As I wrap up another year of Open Enrollment and all the chaos that has ensued, I have to seriously consider if I want to take on the challenge of a Spanish for business course.

While I have strong feelings about English in the work place (definitely another post), I can’t help but feel I’m not helping my employees enough because some of them have a definite language barrier.

I have tried to learn Spanish in the past.  I will say, when I worked in the restaurant industry when I arrived in CA, many moons ago, my Spanish was the best it ever was.  You can’t work in CA restaurants and not pick up some Spanish; it’s near impossible.

Alas, time is not my friend and has erased much of the Latin-based language that used to roll off my tongue as easily as a trilled “r”.  When I attempt to remember how to say certain Spanish phrases, I feel like I’m speaking like a child.  I know a four-year old has better grammar than I do.  I miss words, context, etc.  Heck, I’m lucky if they get the gist of what I’m trying to convey.

I know what’s holding me back, besides money, is my lack of ability to practice.  I know I’m a perfectionist and I don’t want to sound unintelligent when I’m speaking with employees.  I’m still considering a course or two.  It can’t hurt and if I can make my employees understand the importance of what is required of them, while accurately informing them of their options, so they can make an informed decisions about their health-care, then I should be willing to give it the old-college-try, right?

To learn or not to learn? That is the real question!
