Question Do You Speak Spanish?

Does anyone here know how it too speak Spanish? It's going become
one the most heard languages in the U.S. soon and I wondered if
anyone here is fluently bilingual in Spanish. If not.Do you knew
at least a few words. Tell the truth. And don't say yes,If you
don't and then try to be funny about it. I don't make fun of
the English language.So I don't like when people make of the
Spanish language.

I take Spanish in school, which helps me understand/read it quite a bit but the biggest help in understanding Spanish is how similar it is to Portuguese, and I've heard it most of my life. Many words are one or two letters different in spelling if not the same, for example porta/puerta/door, sobrinho/sobrino/nephew, etc.

I took Spanish in High School, and the only thing I remember is bano means bathroom.

Is that right? My Spanish is a little fuzzy.

Why is it required?? Is it Spanish itself that's required or is there a language requirement in your school and you chose it?

I wish I did, so I could understand Gregory Sierra's Spanish rants on Barney Miller, Sanford & Son, and Soap!! But I digress. My dad has actually taught Spanish, as well as German.

There was a storyline on Days of Our Lives years ago where the teenagers went to Puerto Rico for some class trip. One of the kids said, "I only know two words in Spanish - taco and bell."

I took 7 years of it all through middle school and HS. I did really well, but I wouldn't call myself fluent. If a native speaker starts speaking really fast, I'll only pick up a word or two. But if the person were speaking at a normal rate, I'd prob. be able to have a decent conversation.
