but as they say no place to learn a language like on a pillow.
Certainly my experience

Quote:
Dancing and food are really good non-boring topics to talk to Latinos and Latinas about. They are interested and they understand these topics, and they are quite surprised when an old gringo also understands and is interested. I learned la cumbia in its birthplace way before most of these folks were born.
Ha, if you speak the language and can to the music you will change in a very positive way the way latinos see gringos...

I read the joke and I don't think it will lose anything in the translation--why not post a (euphemistically worded where appropriate) translation too?

Free Translation Online Dictionary Translator
