Esl appr where do they meet

“Elena” by Pat Mora

My Spanish isn’t enough.I remember how I’d smilelistening to my little ones,understanding every word they’d say,their jokes, their songs, their plots.Vamos a pedirledulces a mama. Vamos.But that was in Mexico.Now my children to go American high schools.They speak English. At night they sit aroundthe kitchen table, laugh with one another.I stand by the stove and feel dumb, alone.I bought a book to learn English.My husband frowned, drank more beer.My oldest said, “Mama, he doesn’t want youto be smarter than he is. “I’m forty,embarrassed at mispronouncing words,embarrassed at the laughter of my children,the grocer, the mailman. Sometimes I takemy English book and lock myself in the bathroom,say the thick words softly,for if I stop trying, I will be deafwhen my children need my help.
