My crush doesn't speak English
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 starters 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. Que bueno!
