When I hear someone speaking Spanish, and their conversation looks interesting, I ask my husband what they're saying. Usually he's in lala land though lol.

I do too. I am very much white, but my best friend growing up was Mexican and her mom would only speak Spanish to us because she wanted us to learn. I can only say a few things, but I understand a lot. I am also fluent in sign so I catch myself watching.

I eaves drop on some of my coworkers when they are speaking Mandarin.  I don't even speak the language and I'm not even Chinese.

I do that too. But to a Thai or a Chinese person. I'm Thai so I understand Thai. I understand Chinese because my mom likes to curse me out in Chinese sometime.
