Totally Estupido, Part 2

| Learning | October 23, 2015

(I’m at a beginner Spanish class. I’m Hispanic and it shows. The teacher approaches me.)

Teacher: “I don’t think that you should be here.”

Me: “Why not?”

Teacher: “You’re Hispanic?”

Me: “Yes, biologically, but I was adopted by uh, English-speaking parents.”

Teacher: “But you’re Hispanic! You should be in an advanced class!”

(Sadly, she wasn’t the first nor the last to assume that I could speak Spanish!)
