Jose, you speak so much good the English.
In an interview with Célia Cruz, the wonderful Cuban singer, she said, "I don't speak so very much good looking the English!" She was such a sweet lady that -- from her -- it sounded wonderful.
Years ago at a Nicaraguan party, a fellow asked me in halting English, "You...espeak...espanish? I...espeak...espanish too!" I almost fell out of my chair laughing. I certainly hope that I had the grace not to say anything unkind to him. He was doing his best, and that is always to be admired.
