About Orlando and this blog
Hard to believe, but I started this blog back in 2007. It’s been a place to write some of my thoughts about learning a foreign language. This comes both from my experience as a professor who teaches Spanish and Portuguese, and from my experience as a learner of foreign languages, which seems to have become a hobby of sorts.
As to my own background, I was born in Canada, raised in Utah, schooled in California, and finally got it right in 1989 by moving to Austin, Texas where I am a member of the faculty at the University of Texas.
To those who read the blog, thanks for your comments. It is always appreciated.
