Bottoms up mis amigos!

More alcohol, better español, study says! Learning how to speak a second (or a 3rd, a 4th, etc.) language goes better with beer, study says. Let’s say if you are to learn the Spanish language.

Having some shot of tequila or pisco beforehand will definitely help—or at least will help you curse or slur making you think you are speaking Spanish. That’s something, right?

You may be asking yourself, what doesn’t go better with cerveza?  I’d say walking a straight line, giving a eulogy and hopscotch.

In that order: But speaking Spanish does definetely go with more cerveza. Remember: “More alcohol, better Spanyol.”

A toast to Spanish

Did you know that a little alcohol can help you speak a foreign language more correctly—especially Spanish? Why? Because we, Hispanics, love beer and are a bunch of borracho people. As simple as that! Shrugs!

¡Solo bromeo, hombre! Just kidding, man! Hic! Hic! Hic! ….Did you know, at KDF, we have been organizing FREE LESSONS & meetups to practice Spanish for more than five years now?

Did you know you can also drink while practicing Spanish during our KDF socials?

Since before the pandemic, our socials have been taking place at different venues: At libraries (bibliotecas), parks (parques), clubs (clubes) and, even, at some bars (bares) to get food and drink—obvioulsy, speaking only in Spanish?

So back to the study…

50 native German students who had recently learned how to speak Dutch were split into two groups.

One group was given just under a pint of beer while the other water, then they talked with Dutch native-speaker observers who rated their language skills.

Elevating Spanish with alcohol

The research shows how a small amount of alcohol puts language anxiety at ease AND improves speaking.

With this stellar news are you tempted to turn on some Telemundo with your glass of wine this evening and see men and ladies in bikinis and test the theory? Be my guest!

Tell the cast of Pasión de Gavilanes I said hello! If the characters talk back to you, estás borracho amigouuu! Be easy my friends.

Exploring the effects of alcohol

Researchers point out that getting hammered would likely have the opposite effect. If the room starts spinning, don’t spin the other way because you might explode. So, let´s always drink with moderation.

The link in the scientific community between alcohol and more natural speaking of a non-native language stems from a 1972 study that showed how low doses of alcohol helped Americans pronounce Thai words.

Alcohol is a means of liquid courage; it helps millions sing karaoke at 2 a.m., dance wildly at bah mitzvahs and hook up with random strangers in passionate Hollywood-esque kisses.

The most acclaimed film to hit theaters since Coco: the most famous Spanish movie of our times where you can’t see no people: Only “illegal” cartoons. Sorry I meant undocumented.

Look, alcohol lowers inhibitions and stimulates acting more than thinking. In general, most people find it easier to communicate after a drink or two (or four or five).

“So then I went to band camp and this guy…” Well, you can imagine what happened after. What happens while speaking Spanish stays in your only Spanish stories book! Because speaking a different language is like having a different soul.

Discover the Flavor of Spanish!

Trust me, it goes better with beer. Especially when you find out what went on at band camp. Exactly! And you may be tempted to repeat it until you get fluent in Spanish of course. After all: What happens in a band camp, stay in a band camp! Otherwise, while would you do it again?

Language: A social tool!

Let’s face it: language is a social activity! That´s why learning a language on your own may be considered by some a strange thing to do. WTF cares anyways, right? You can maybe study a language on your own and be able to speak it—at least to yourself or your alter-ego on the other side of the mirror. The possibilities are endless.

But… what do you prefer: to study or to learn Spanish? Or even better, wouldn’t you prefer to acquire Spanish instead of learning it. Acquiring a language is more natural than learning a language.

There’s no point in learning a new way to say “pissed to meet you” (I meant “please”; I may have drank enough Spanish alcohol by now) if there was no one new to meet.

Go Beyond the Basics!

Native English speakers on average, are content just to know the basics of español, the hello, thank you, hasta la vista baby (this is not Spanish!), where’s the bathroom?; but this lacks communicating with a real person who shares hopes, fears, an uncle Jose, and a cell phone plan.

We communicate to share who we are and learn about others.  At KDF, our mission is to immerse you in an exquisitely rich Hispanic culture while enhancing your Spanish language skills,

So you never have to say, No Habla español, ever again!  By learning a different language, you will get new customers, make new friends and maybe even fall in love. Cheers to that!

Understand the Power of Words!

The power of your words and the ability to communicate with others is more important now than it ever was.

With Latinos comprising 33% (313,636) of the San Jose California population—and around 20% of the U.S. population, you’re missing out on creating relationships with thousands of people.

Stop just relying on your hand (I mean to drink) and start learning Spanish.

Master a new language without mysticism

The ability to learn a foreign language is not a mystical science like hanging a spoon on your nose, eating 100 hot dogs in ten minutes.

Saying the alphabet backwards or walking on water. You begin by humanly relating to people; smiling, laughing, and then twerking (perreo) incrediby well on a full moon night.

Maybe hold out on the twerking (for now) but imagine if language barriers weren’t an issue in relating to 300,000 people!  Oh, the possibilities!

Rolling your Tongue as a Pussy-Cat!

You could roll your tongue, purring like a gatito o gatita (pussy cat) when speaking about a delicious cheese or tell someone about that bald boss of yours who has the mental capacity of an eleven-year-old. No, I am not talking about your former orange president. Actually, his mental age is much lower.

Most of us desire to get closer to each other, but often it’s the little things that keep us apart.  And when taps flow and drinks clink, you’re more comfortable.
