We received an email today from a person in Spain who has a friend who only speaks spanish. Is there anyone out there who is willing and able to communicate with this person? The email reads:

Dear all,

A friend of mine has a 14 year old son with Asperger's syndrome. His name is Marc.Marc is already been treated at hospital and he's abou to start a group therapy. We all live in Barcelona, Spain and Mrac's mother, Montse cannot speak/write English language. She asked me to contact you in order to know wheather she can comunicate with other parents in your forum in Spanish. Do you think that could be possible?

Thanks in advance for your kind attention.

Isabel Molins
Barcelona, Spain


I realize that "hispanic" spanish and "Spain" spanish are ever so slightly different, but if you are able to help in any way, please let either Kim or myself know and we will connect the two of you. Thanks!

I can't, and I took 4 years of spanish!!!! Hopefully someone is bilingual. I can ask someone if they have to go to the bathroom.. and the normal hello, how are you, and what's wrong.. that's about it =(

lol... yeah, me too. I was just in Miami, and it seems most people down there speak Spanish as a first language... I was able to make it through the checkout lines and that was about it.

I was trying to get my prescriptions filled and was having some difficulties due to my insurance and Dr. office, so I was waiting in the little seating area while it was all getting sorted out when this gentleman sitting next to me started spouting off rapid fire spanish at me. I at first just nodded politely, but then he kept going. At that point I simply said "Lo siento, no habla Español..." To which he replied, "Walgreens sucks, CVS is better." and then he kept muttering what seemed to be curses in his rapid fire spanish. lol... I had to laugh at that.

Being there definitely reminded me of my 2 week spanish summer immersion course after my second year of spanish though... but like you, I've lost most of what I've learned. I can usually understand more than I can speak. But that's about how I am with English too... lol.

LOL@event at walgreens!! So, off topic, but are you guys happy to be home? oh.. What do you think about putting an add on craigslist under volunteers, something like "nonprofit looking for bilingual adult to help translate messages online?" I have to post the CD on craiglist tomorrow, so I could type something up for someone who is bilingual =D Maybe interview via email a few, and worst case scenerio, they get banned KWIM.

Extremely. Although, it was very nice to see family we hadn't seen for a couple of years, and for me to meet family of Colin's which I'd never met before... Even if it was for a solemn purpose.

Richard got antsy after a few days without his playstation... lol. Even though we had a portable DVD player and ALL of his DVD's and his Nintendo DS with 8 different games to choose from, not to mention 2 bags full of cars big and small and his 6 most favorite books... and more things too. But noooo, that wasn't quite enough. lol. Picky lil' punk. Razz

We leave in about 2 weeks for my mom's for another week, but that trip usually goes pretty smooth as my mom spoils the ever loving crap out of him. But I'm seriously thinking of bringing the Playstation this time. It's small enough... *sigh* The things we do for our kids, right? lol

You should have seen this one family of 4 (2 parents, 2 kids) we saw exiting as we were leaving the hotel as well though, they had a whole cart loaded up with stuff, including their own little 12 inch TV and bags piled up 6 feet high on the cart, no joke. And I thought we went overboard...

@craigslist thing... meh, I dunno. I suppose we could do something like that, but give it a day or two here first to see if anyone responds. I know not everyone watches the forum, but you never know. Let's just see what happens.
