Bart --

Years ago, when I began doing business in Spanish speaking places, I undertook a serious project to learn the language:  I hired a tutor, bought audio language programs, and learned to read books in Spanish.  It was a successful effort -- sorta.  I could do business with our Mexican attorney who spoke little English.  I could communicate with government officials in both Mexico and Puerto Rico.

However, comma, I could not interact with the people on the production line or easily buy a burrito on the streets of Tijuana.

I moved my target down a bit for my next project.  It, too, was successful, but it was a learning experience.

Take care,
