Alright, now I'm starting to suspect quotations from Rammestein lyrics.


Nein.

This sounds starkly similar to my high school Spanish classes. In the 4 years of high school, we had one teacher retire, she was replaced by another woman who was not really bright. She didn't last a year, and quit after a few months. They replaced her with a beautiful long term sub, who wasn't able to take the sexual harassment that she got from a lot of the guys in my class as well as the class below us. She was replaced with another sub who didn't even SPEAK Spanish, but was really abusive to the kids. That hack lasted until the end of my second year, when they got rid of her, brought back the woman who had retired in the first place for a few months until they hired this new guy, an ex FBI agent who was brilliant, but a poor teacher. He lasted about 6 or 7 years here until he was released last year. He was replaced at the beginning of this year by a new woman who seems to be turning the joke of a language program around.

I can still understand a decent amount of Spanish, I think I learned better working with a bunch of illegal immigrants at McDonalds.

How different is Spanish from Portuguese
?


It's sort of hard to describe. I learned Spanish while I was living in
Argentina, and the Argentine accent is heavily influenced by neighboring
Brazill. That's why I'm able to understand (Brazilian) Portuguese almost
perfectly.

The grammar and word roots are often identical, but the pronunciation
(particularly in Brazilian Portuguese) is pretty crazy.

It's strange, I could read a passage in portuguese and translate it into
English or Spanish, but I wouldn't be able to read it aloud in the original
portuguese.

I took it from 7th through 12th grade, even went through the AP class and took the state college equivalence exam to get college credit for it.

To this day I couldn't tell you how I got college credit for that class. The teacher was horrible, and I was lazy.
