What Else She Said

[Ladino is] a 15th century Spanish that the Jews that were expelled from Spain spoke in the 15th century when they went to other countries like Holland, Turkey, Italy, and North Africa. They kept their language to this day. The construction of the language is 15th century Spanish mixed with some Hebrew or local words. My grandmother and some aunts spoke Ladino so it was very clear that that was our cultural heritage.
