About Jared & Speaking Latino

My name is Jared, and I am a native of the United States of America whose first serious attempt at learning languages began in my early twenties. Until then, I’d say, I had a more or less typical background. After age 5, I lived in one area of the country, never outside the US and had little exposure to Spanish. Then, in my early twenties, aseries of fortuitous circumstances completely changed my life.

I am not an educated linguist. I started as a language learner just like you. I’ve spent thousands of hours studying and speaking Spanish. I had a couple of years in my life when English barely existed. And with this, I know how difficult learning to communicate in Spanish may be.
