Hi Soila,

I have seen kids interpret for parents. I had a job where people asked to have their kids interpret for them, but I would let them know that I speak their language (albeit with a nonnative accent). I was curious if you had ever been to Guatemala, and if your parents speak another language in addition to Spanish. When I volunteered in Guatemala, I noticed that many people spoke Spanish as a second language. I think about half of them speak an Indigenous language as a first language. I apologize if my curiosity is going off the charts.
