I really only speak English, but I'm trying to learn Spanish (my church offers an opportunity to travel to Cuba each year as part of their mission focus and I've been able to travel there 3 times now - I hope to go again in the future to visit my dear friends there). And, thanks to my daughter who speaks 5 or 6 languages (I've lost count), I now can say "I don't know" in at least 4 languages (besides English)!

I grew up bilingual here in the U.S. speaking English and Arabic. In high school and college I learned Spanish... not fluent, but intermediate, and it has come in very handy in my work here at JHH!
