There's a language school down near
Mexico City that strives to create the perfect learning environment.
They do that so people can come down, and in just three weeks,
learn enough Spanish to have an actual conversation with a local.
Nancy Updike went down for a few weeks...but, when she got there
she found something the school's organizers didn't want her to
know: See, what happens when you learn a language is you start
understanding new things...like what the locals are talking about.
