haha. Reminds me of Rush Hour when Tucker speaks really loudly in English. Like if they don't understand english, we have to speak LOUDER. You get a lot of spanish-speakers at lvlc right?

Imagine how it would feel going ht eother way, when people who you're speaking their native language do the same. Would that help?

Sorry, I didn't mean for that last comment to sound rude. It's just that I've imagined over and over what it must feel like to be trying to learn English (which is really rough, one of the hardest to learn as a second language), and it's not like I intend to speak down to these adults. I'm used to working with children, unfortunately. Teaching a child to read and teaching an adult to read are much. MUCH. different.
