  1. I have a problem understanding using hyphen in words. I am pretty good in talking and listening English but writing has always been a bit of a weakness.

I'm not sure if language is still a problem with them but that baby will certainly pick up both languages with the way I know the girl.
  5. I worked as an operator for a major telecommunications company in the US. Although my mother tongue is Filipino, I am quite fluent in English. But there were times that Spanish-speaking costumers would call. I would usually use a spiel and transfer them to the Spanish queue. I speak and understand a little Spanish so I was confident. There was a time when a Spanish-speaking costumer went through and there was a long queue that she got irate. She didn't want to get transferred and wanted to discuss her bill with me in Spanish.
