My Peruvian friend´s comment is starting to make sense to me: ¨You´re going to learn Spanish in Argentina? But then you will talk like them!¨ Imagine the limited English you spoke had been learned by watching American sitcoms and then you wound up in Scotland…. This is how I feel about trying to understand people here. Since I speak German like a Berlin adolescent and Chinese like a Shanghainese taxi driver I think it´s fitting I learn to speak Spanish like a Porteña.
