Llámame Ms Regards…

I like to mix a bit of English into the Spanish when I write to Spaniards who want to learn English. Even if they have a very low level, they appreciate reading a word or two in English. They rise to the challenge. After all, you can’t learn a language until you start using it…Unfortunately, I’ve recently discovered that there are limits to how much you can throw a beginner in at the deep end… The other day I wrote an email (All names and information have been changed to protect identity):

“Dear Purificación,

Español, español, español, español, español, español, español, español, español…. etc

Kind regards,

Emma”

The next day I got an email that began:

“Dear Kind…”

I quite like it. Ms Regards has got a certain ring to it…And if women in Spain can be called Purificación, Concepción and Esperanza (Purification, Conception and Hope), why can’t I be called Kind?! 😀
