stormborn's spanish is perfect, i wish can someday write english perfect, like he, wrote spanish
Jhosep, welcome aboard. You seem to express yourself well in English. Looks like our Stormy knows more Spanish than you do. Now, you sure you are from the hostile neighboring country? Looks like you were educated in an English country.
I speak spanish but it is not native to me. My mom who grew up speaking spanish corrects me often enough. So does my sister who presently lives between Spain and Canada. I often discover I do not know the names of common things and have to ask. My spanish is from travels and from speaking to spanish folks here. I have not lived in the culture or formally studied it sufficiently long enough for it to be natural to me.
To that end I think my french is better than my spanish since I studied it and spent extended times hanging out in Montreal and Quebec as a kid and many summers in France and Belgium as an adult. However, I read a lot in french and look at international movies and speak to my french friends just to keep it alive.
We ought to separate the people from the policy of the political elites of the country. Venezuelans accepted some 80 thousand Guyanese in el tigre when our country was having problems. These were mostly indians who migrated there as Sunil can affirm since he knows venezuela. I spent a summer there with my mother who has family there. We owe them a lot.
It is the reason I complain about the present policy in Guyana where the government not thought about a refugee policy or how to accommodate our people who are returning. Only yesterday, the an amerindian chief in the Barima area noted his village is doubled because of families returning. He is welcoming them back with open arms.
Our government must accept its responsibility to protect refugees and our own people bringing their new Venezuelan family as the come home to escape poverty.
