You know the beautiful thing about AS Spanish? They don't expect you to be anywhere near as good as native speakers. They treat you like the doddering ingles-speaking idiot you are. They make you say hola several times over. You are not expected to contend with native speakers when you take the exam.

It's so BEAUTIFUL.

Because I'm just realising that I was expected to speak like a native for every other language I've learnt formally. Malay? Write that 350-or-more-word essay, shiznit, and it BETTER BE GOOD. Chinese? This is your mother tongue, bitch, so swallow that millennia-old poem and be grateful.
