As a Latin-American with parents from Cuba and Puerto Rico, I do feel a certain level of embarrassment for not being fluent in Spanish.
The people who know me know that I try to practice speaking in Spanish and appreciate HELPFUL criticism when I fuck up (which is all the time!) My parents thought they were giving me a better chance in America by speaking only English to me growing up. I don't fault them.
And yes I did take Spanish in junior high and high school. So for those who think that's enough education to master a subject, I also suck at math.
