Spanish sin pena, erasing the stigma of non-fluency

Latinos who do not speak Spanish feel left out and looked down upon by other Latinos from their background. Some cannot speak to other relatives or feel like a fraud when they are around them since they can’t speak the language despite looking like them. It is important now more than ever for Latinos to speak Spanish, as the language is on track in the United States to have the most Spanish speakers by 2050, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
