My husband Doug has always wanted to have more command of the Spanish language. He goes on bouts of studying on his own, pouring over textbooks, dictionaries, and listening to CDs while he mutters his responses to himself. He used to communicate with people working in his store, and now his main reason is to be able to speak fluently to our son-in-law, who is from Honduras.
When he found out about Lake Tahoe Community College’s Intensive Spanish Summer Institute (ISSI) I knew he was going to sign up for it. What I didn’t expect was that I would join him.
