I did well enough on my French SAT (even though it was by far my lowest SAT score--in the 600s) to place out of having to take a foreign language in college, but I took a semester or 2 of Italian when I flirted with Art History/European History as a major. I picked up a tad bit of Spanish when we had a small exposure in elementary school and then while watching Sesame Street with the kiddoes. I could do tourist French & Italian when I visited those countries 3x each plus Quebec--past tense. I'd have to do significant study to travel on my own there again. And my pronunciation was always atrocious--can't come anywhere near the French R. Or a trilled R. Or even the Shakespearean/Oxfordian/great British actors' R, for that matter. I've never been to a Spanish-speaking country, other than the Mission District in San Francisco, which I lived next to for awhile.ASIDEPardon me while I swoon over the voice of Alan Rickman for a moment ;-) It's especially easy to fall into as I'm reading a long and delicious Harry Potter fanfic that focuses on Professor Snape:Chasing the Sun (60 chapters! I've been reading for days and only up to Ch 23):https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7413926/1/Chasing-The-Sun
