• Spanish Speakers Emphasize The Positive, Study Shows

    Since I’m always hopping on the positive train, I wanted to share this article in Latin Times, which stood out for me. As a Spanish speaker, at times I accentuate certain words to add that extra spice.

    ¿No me creáis?

    Researchers from the University of Vermont have found an advantage and benefit of speaking Spanish. Or rather, in the new way Spanish-speakers express themselves. According to the researchers, those who converse in Spanish are more positive and speak in a more positive manner than those who speak other languages.
