Can I Speak Spanish? (Spanish vs. French)

Despite being a language freak, I have never studied Spanish… other than that one time in Barcelona when I wanted to order a coffee (Donde esta la biblioteca? No, that’s not right).

However, since I have been studying French and Italian for a number of years, it got me thinking: since these three languages are part of the same language family, the Romance Languages, how much Spanish would I be able to understand with my basis in French and Italian?

EXPERIMENT TIME! In this video, I’ll read a Spanish text and listen to a Spanish audio clip to see if French and Italian have *actually* allowed me to have some sort of competency in Spanish. Check out how it went!
