#5- Have you encountered the  proverbial Spanish language wall yet?

Did you ever wonder how long it really takes to finally break through that so-called invisible Spanish language wall? Yes, there is said to be a kind of virtual wall that most gringos with bad Spanish eventually bump up against… and most can’t seem to get past. One of the giveaways that you've got your nose is up against it, is when you get stuck into the monotonous mode of speaking Spanish in PRESENT tense only. And though present tense is enough to get your point across, its never enough to have a real give and take conversation with a native Spanish speaker.
