Learn A Foreign Language and Make Sure Your Kids Do, Too

As my loyal readers know, I moved to Mazatlan, Mexico, in January 2021. There’s a large American and Canadian ex-pat community here, and learning to speak Spanish is optional if you only want to communicate with your fellow gringos. However, I want to enjoy the Mexican culture and people so learning Spanish is mandatory for me. I admire and envy anyone who can speak two languages.
