Working in a law office where everyone except me is fully fluent in Spanish. It seems odd that if the words are written, I understand them better. When people speak, I don’t comprehend as well. I suppose it is because I have learned by reading and studying on my own.
Still not fluent by a long shot! But, I do know the jist of most things and need less help every day. Always afraid I will mis-comprehend something and screw up the client’s case- this is immigration law and an error could mean someone gets sent “home” where they don’t need to be!!!
Going to keep at this one unless I have to start studying for the bar again. 15 months ago
