There’s this boy in my class that
I really like, but he never notices me. Well, he does. He can’t
understand me. He speaks Spanish!
Ay, caramba! Since you can't learn an
entire language in a night's study sesh (kudos if you make it your
New Year rezzie to learn the basics), you’ve gotta find easier ways
to chit chat with him.
If he’s new to the country, he’ll
probably start to pick up English soon, and then you’ll be able to
have a conversation with him. The good news is, though, it’s not
that hard to learn how to say, “Hi, my name is…” in Spanish.
Just in case you don’t know, that’s “Hola, me llamo…” and
it is pronounced “me yam-OH.” Since it's the holidays, be sure to
wish him a “Feliz Navidad,” too!
Busting out some convo
will show that you made an effort to break the language barrier to
talk to him, so he’ll probably be impressed. And don’t be
embarrassed if you flub! Chances are, he'll think it’s cute and can
relate to trying to learn another language. Plus, you could ask him
to teach you some Spanish vocab while you help him master English.
No matter what, do your best and amp up
the body language. You two might not speak the same language, but a
smile is universal, so flash your pearly whites to your crush and
attempt a convo!
Love this post? You'll heart these, too!
