Name: Christopher Hernandez
What languages do you speak?
I speak English and Spanish.
What is your favorite saying in your native language?
“¡Yo tengo hambre!” (“I’m hungry!”)
What is a family tradition that you enjoy?
I enjoy going to church with my family.
What career would you like to have?
I would like to be a boxer.
What is your favorite subject?
Writing is my favorite subject.
Has being multilingual allowed you any special opportunities?
I think it’s useful because if I have a job and if there is a person who knows only Spanish, and I know only English, then we can’t communicate, but since I know both languages I am able to communicate with the person who speaks Spanish.
What is your favorite hobby?
What advice would you give to someone trying to learn a new language?
Try speaking the language as much as you can because it’s good practice and it will help you improve!
