    your way of learning languages is wrong because when you start pronouncing words without familiarity in sounds of the language you mostly pronounce words wrong also you have to pronounce not single words but by blending them together in this way you try copy music and rhythm of a language but this take time and it makes that in the future you'll have to spend additional time for correcting a poor pronunciation anyway I'd advice you to work on those your so-called proficient languages before you pick up new one and don't try cheat people by saying them you're good you sound like a gringo

    Oh! I've been looking for the blog post where you mentioned the toothbrush incident and haven't been able to track it down. Does anyone know the post title?

    Haha very funny story, yet with a great message. I had a similar experience in Chile where I almost got completely ripped off by a tour company. The difference was that at this point I was quite fluent in Spanish, however I'd never had to argue with someone to get my way. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone and I definitely sounded like a blumbering idiot because I didn't have the vocabulary to get mad at someone for messing up my travel plans haha.

    But we got a big discount on the travel package, so all worked out well in the end! :)

    I had to get by with what I called "caveman Spanish" when I was in Central America. It worked!
